New Publication - Egerton

We have released our 38th publication today, this one about the village of Egerton.

The booklet provides an overview of the history of Egerton, from the seventeenth to twentieth centuries.  It focuses on the lives of the families who gave their names to the area, and the businesses and activities of some of the principal families who contributed to its development.

It contains chapters about the Walmsley, Egerton, Ashworth and Deakin families, and 130 illustrations and old photographs, including rare pictures of Egerton Hall and the Ashworth family, not previously published.

Priced at £10, it is available to buy through the following outlets:
