Local Research Projects


Personal histories of local life

Audrey Evans and Peter Keat have now compiled and published seven booklets of local history and memories. Most of these are available from the Information Centre for £3 each.

In order of publication the titles are:

Drayton Revisited, Drayton Memories, More Drayton Memories, Drayton and Farlington and beyond, Drayton Revealed, Drayton Echoes and Drayton Extra (out-of-print).

If anyone has a copy of Drayton Extra that they no longer want, we can buy it from you. 

Another, apparently final title called Drayton Final will be published about Easter-time 2018.
