Local History

I have always had an interest in history, my interest in Local History in particular Aslockton and Whatton-in-the-Vale (I have lived in both parishes) took root in the 1990s. I was one of the founder members of the Cranmer Local History Group in 2001 and that gave me an outlet for my interest.  The Group has now has a wider Local History interest so I have decided to publish the material that I have amassed about Whatton and Aslockton and to a lesser extent Scarrington on this website.

Most of the documents  are made up of articles by me, although I also include transcripts that I have made of various source material and contributions from others (their involvement is acknowledged in the text).

You are free to make use of the material on this site, I just ask that you acknowledge my copyright or me as the source.
