Then and Now Book

Colmworth and Neighbouring Villages: Then and Now

This is our latest publication, in which we aim to show some of the changes in our village landscape and houses in recent years. We have taken photographs from our archives, some from as early as the 1900s and re-photographed them as near as possible from the same viewpoint in 2018. The book costs £5 plus £2 post & packing (cheques made payable to Colmworth & Neighbours History Society) and it is available from Dave Jarrett, 3 Collingwood Road, Eaton Socon, Cambridgeshire PE19 8JQ, email:
