More Memories of Old Henbury

Home » News » Mod Cons in Henbury

During the lockdown we've found some time to read again this lovely book "Henbury — History of a Village" which was researched written and published by members of the Henbury Society in 2003 . It tells the story of our village from the Domesday Survey of 1086 right up to the beginning of the 21st century.

Also during lockdown lots of Henbury residents have taken the opportunity to walk around the village, perhaps discovering places and things they never knew were there, and wanting to know more.

Some of the highlights in the book cover conversations the authors recorded with longstanding residents of the parish about their lives in the times not too far beyond the memories of lots of us who live here now, so we thought we'd pick out one or two excerpts from the book and pop them on Henbury Online to remind us all how life was then.

This one is called Mod Cons in Henbury, and it's accompanied by a map which shows the locations referred to. Just click on the attachments.

If you like what you see why not treat yourself to a copy of this wonderful book?

It's available to residents from the Henbury Society at only £5 per copy. Just contact us at for details.
