a period of almost 2 years a group of residents have produced
the definitive history of Westoning along with chapters on its
past and present residents, clubs, inns, businesses , recreation
as well as its religious and educational institutions.
book is just over 200 pages, including 8 coloured pages, 100
black and white photos many not seen for a number of years,16
maps,appendices on records about the parish kept at County Hall
, a VERY comprehensive index (over 500 items) including people
and detailed information on past & present parish activities.
history covers from AD 880 to the present day.
last time this was done was with an insert in the Domesday Book
is a soft (£15) and a special hard bound (£30) covered
versions. The book will be on sale in the parish from 1 November
2002 making it an ideal Christmas present for all , including
relatives,friends and past residents now living outside the
500 copies sold since
it went on sale in November 2002.....

be used as a reference book over the years ahead.
