Thundersley and Daws Heath - A History
The people, the area, the history
Renowned local author Robert Hallmann has written an essential history of Thundersley and Daws Heath. The ancient parish truly deserves this delightful book of over 200 pages, amply illustrated with over 300 pictures and using numerous sources, many rare and not previously published.
Building on the continued success of, and maintaining the production qualities of, Hadleigh Postcard Memories, Hadleigh and Thundersley Community Archive is delighted to publish the book for which so many of you have asked.
From farming to motor cycle manufacture, Thundersley people have shown industry and ingenuity in conserving ancient woodlands and commons despite continued development pressures. Including artists, writers, buildings, families, maps and speeding vehicles; it is a hugely interesting read!
The paperback version (which cost £14.99) is completely sold out from the Archive and Essex 100, although a few copies may be left at the following sales points: Hadleigh and Tarpots Libraries; Anns MiniMart; Dans News; Woodmans News; Leigh Heritage Centre; The Book Inn.
The hardback version is still available for £20 at local history events.
