History

There are some interesting sites which have the history of our village:-


British History Online


Wikipedia



Steve Odell’s excellent site on the Speculum Gregis gives some interesting information from the 1840s and the views of Reverend Fulford of the people of the parish. It also has information about the Sunday School and the Croydon Riot.  It can be found here


If you have any interesting articles, facts or pictures you think would be of interest please let me know.
















New photo, click it for a larger view, tanks to Val Barnes who writes:


It was sent to me by a gentleman called Bryan Smith whose grandfather was Samuel Lee, who was listed on the Roll of Honour and who was PostMaster here. Bryan thought it could possibly be an early Armistice Day parade/procession. It is obviously late in the year as there are no leaves on the tree and the women (and they all seem to be women) are bundled up in their coats, coming down Church Lane, presumably from the church.


The photo was part of an article from the Cambridge Chronicle of 19 January 1922.  Relatives and friends in procession from the Church to the War Memorial which was unveiled the previous Saturday.
