After nearly three years of research Littlebury, a Parish History was published. The authors, those who offered assistance, archive material and advice together with residents of Littlebury, Littlebury Green and Catmere End came to a launch at Littlebury Village Hall to celebrate the results of a community project funded by the LHI.
Local schools, the Library, Museum, Archive Access Point and every household in the parish was invited to receive a free copy of the 288 page book. Fully illustrated in colour, the history was written and researched by 44 authors, nearly all of who were residing in the parish at the time. Spanning earliest archaeology to the twentieth century it covers many subjects including transport, health, education, poverty, religion and gentrification, bringing the history of the village and hamlets of Littlebury, Littlebury Green and Catmere End as well as that of Audley End into sharp and fascinating focus.
LHI was a partnership between the Heritage Lottery Fund, Nationwide Building Society and the Countryside Agency.
