The Wintringham Story

It is our great pleasure to announce that a book has been written on the history of Wintringham.

Its author, Elaine Farrelly, undertook the project independently of us, for love not money; she had free reign to write whatever she liked. It turns out though that she likes us a lot!

We feel  honoured by the marvellous way she has woven our stories and pictures into a rollicking narrative.

We can wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading.
Instead of a dry history, Elaine has produced an absolute page-turner.


Details of where the book can be purchased are available on the author's website; click here The Wintringham Story by Elaine Farrelly.
