From the rear side cover: Alhough Witham was first recorded in the year 912, photographic records date only from the late nineteenth century. The town has changed greatly over this period, most significantly in the 1960s when it expanded to provide industrial estates, many new houses and a new shopping precinct. A bypass was also built at that time.

The town has evolved to accommodate these changes, and the purpose of this book is to identify and illustrate them. This tour is a short introduction to the town and the wealth of history it holds, and is sure to evoke a wealth of personal memories and interest to anyone who knows and loves Witham and would enjoy a trip into its recent past.

The book will delight anyone who has lived or grown up in Witham, as well as people with a more general interest in the social history of this part of Essex and beyond....
