The Haslingfield Chronicle

Who stole a green flounced petticoat from the house of Thomas Prime of Haslingfield in the County of Cambridge on 18 September 1784?  And what else did he nick?  To find the answer to this and a hundred other gems of essential knowledge you’ll need this fascinating publication.

After a gap of 28 years, the Village Society has reprinted The Haslingfield Chronicle.   It contains all the newsworthy items relating to the village that were printed in the Cambridge Chronicle between 1776 and 1900.   Fires, murders, accidents, parties – they’re all there, together with 19th century photos, maps and engravings.  The Chronicle gives  a comprehensive view of life in Victorian Haslingfield warts and all.   An ideal gift for anyone interested in local history, including the dodgy bits.

The book is a bargain at £3.50.   If you live in Haslingfield you can purchase copies from the Post Office, or we can deliver to you.  If you live elsewhere in UK, add £1 for postage and packaging.   If you live abroad in Europe, allow £2. And if you live in Australia, allow £3.
