The Hadleigh Heritage Information Pack

Hadleigh Heritage Pack

A fascinating heritage project {described here} included talks, exhibitions and research from which came this Hadleigh Heritage information pack. It includes a superb  historical timeline and a series of beautifully illustrated sheets which start with the Iron Age and move seamlessly through Roman,  Saxon, Norman and Medieval times as we journey through Hadleigh’s rich history.

The building of Hadleigh Castle is explained;  surprising to learn that St James the Less church was heavily fortified in its early days.   Hadleigh’s story continues through the Tudor, Stuart and Victorian eras and includes a fascinating insight into the creation of the Salvation Army Hadleigh Farm colony on land overlooked by the castle.

The impact of the dark days of the First and Second World Wars are revealed as is Hadleigh’s educational system.     This superb pack created by XL Creations contains 16 topics, with 34 pages and 60 colour and black and white illustrations and is a joy to leaf through.

The essential companion to the Hadleigh Heritage  information pack is Grave Revelations which gives key historical information on the graves within Hadleigh’s St. James the Less churchyard. Written by Sandra Harvey and Val Jackson, a wealth of detail from Tudor times onwards – supported by a numbered gravestone map – is provided.

The Hadleigh Heritage Information Pack together with Graveyard  Revelations   is now available at £18.00* which includes delivery to anywhere in the UK.

* Items sent to UK addresses are sent carriage free.       Additional postage is  applicable for overseas delivery. Before ordering please e-mail with the country of delivery so we can advise shipping costs.
