Your guide to images from town's history

LOCAL historian Andrew Lamberton spends a fair bit of his time at the county's Records Office doing research for one project or another. And he is often accompanied by fellow enthusiast, Judy St. Pourcain. The pair view old copies of the Nantwich Chronicle and Nantwich Guardian among other documents.

   Andrew then sends me the pictures - and accompanying details - which he captured with his



digital camera during their work. All such pictures are used courtesy of Cheshire and Chester Archives and Local Studies.


Other pictures have been sent to me by family tree expert, Paul Simpson. They are from the family album, taken by his grandfather, Jack Wainwright, who was an employee of the old Nantwich Urban District Council.


Just one point: From time to time website visitors ask Andrew if he has a particular picture. Often he does and he is pleased to share it. However, we also reserve the right to use the picture in this feature for the benefit of other visitors.

   If you ask for a picture we will assume that you are happy with us using your e-mail address, including your name.
