LOCAL PHOTO BLOG MAKES HISTORY

One of our members, Clive Simpson, a professional photographer, has set up a group of photography enthusiasts called PIXABOUT to record local events as they happen in our 'manor'.

CAPTURING HISTORY AS IT HAPPENS

PIXABOUT's first foray was to the Waltham Abbey Town Show, and they've captured many fine views of Walthamites enjoying themselves. These photos will undoubtedly become a valuable historical resource in years to come.

HISTORY IS WHAT WE MAKE IT!

William Winters, Waltham Abbey's best-known historian, wrote just as much in the 1880s and 1890s about what was then current events as he did on 'proper history' - events that happened before his time. His writings are now so valuable as illustrations of late Victorian life in Waltham Abbey that every serious historian should follow his example and record today's events as well as yesterday's.

WAHS is proud to support Clive's initiative, not least because he is actively recording local history as it happens. History isn't just grand events or famous battles, it's made up of everyday life as every family historian knows only too well!
