About Aylsham, by John Pumphrey

Published by the Aylsham Local History Society in 2008, 112 pages. Paperback (N6305X1)

Aylsham is a small market town situated on the banks of the River Bure in north Norolk, and this book provides a fascinating account of the history of the place and its people over past times. The author had lived his entire life in Aylsham (apart from a couple of years of wartime service), and here he recounts stories and memories of his home. The book will thus delight anyone who has grown up or lived in Aylsham, as well as people with a more general interest in the social history of this part of Norolk and beyond. Chapters include:

  • Fire and Water
  • Trade
  • Mills and Wherries
  • The Town Grows
  • Schools
  • Welfare
  • Church and Council
  • Wartime
  • Special Occasions
The condition of the book is generally excellent. The cover is clean and bright, the spine is tight and intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
