WHENEVER a visitor to the website asks a question about Nantwich, I usually know something about the subject, but find myself passing it to a man who I am sure will know much more about it, Andrew Lamberton. And if he doesn't know all about something, he knows where to find the details.

   However, after he has received a constant deluge of unwelcome e-mails of a tasteless nature - the sort that many computer owners receive - it has been decided to delete the e-mail address to which website visitors were invited to send questions. So, sorry you cannot ask any more questions.

  The pages of answers already published will remain on the website, so you can at least read what other website visitors asked.  


  Andrew has also answered many questions - on the This and That page, the Old Nantwich Pictures pages and the Changing Scenes pages. Those pages will also remain on the website and you can still find facts there.  

   Andrew is a published author - along with his colleague, the late Robin Gray - with books on lost buildings in and around Nantwich. He also

co-wrote "Nantwich", in the "Britain in Old Photographs" series of books, with Anne Wheeler for Nantwich Museum.


Historical notes also appear in Family Lines - as well as

the information on family trees
