Branston Remembered

This book sets out numerous aspects of the community history of the village of Branston and takes the reader on a nostalgic journey down memory lane.  It will be of particular interest to anyone who has had any connection with Branston.  It was formulated by the members of Branston History Group committee, with committee member Jennifer Jackson carrying out the detailed work of typing, editing, and compiling the contents.  The publication by the Branston History Group in April 2000 was made possible by a grant under the "Awards for All" programme by the Heritage Lottery Fund.  Although the book is now out of print it is available at local libraries. - P. Scarcliffe

Escape to Branston

In the summer of 1940 a seven year old boy accompanied by his mother arrived in the village of Branston.  He was an evacuee from London and together with his mother took up residence with relatives in the village.  The name of that boy was Peter Owen and he remained in Branston until 1945 when he returned to the family home in London and subsequently took up a career in journalism.  In later years he was inspired to commit to paper his recollections of his time in Branston and this book is the result.  It is a fascinating and heart-warmiing book dealing with his many experiences while in Branston and it is a delight to read.  It was published in the autumn of 2000, some sixty years after he first arrived in the village.  It is no longer in print but it is available in local libraries. - P. Scarcliffe

Traditional Farmsteads and Farming at Branston, Lincolnshire

This is a new booklet published in 2011 by the Branston History Group, the booklet has been written by Joan and Dennis Mills.

The preparation of this booklet has involved many very willing people, living both in Branston and elsewhere, and it literally could not have been written without their help. Branston History Group provided an audience on three evenings in the winter of 2010-2011 and distributed drafts of our scripts for discussion. This generated informed interest leading to extra information, different ideas and perspectives and offers of access to key premises. Committee members also read and commented on the penultimate draft.

The booklet helps to shed light on the farming families and the farmsteads with pictures, maps and family stories.

The booklet is available priced £8.50 including postage and packing from:
