Around Louth

by David Cuppleditch The History Press

The beautiful old spire of St James’ church has kept watch unchanged over the town of Louth but much of this small Lincolnshire market town has altered beyond recognition in recent years.  Many of the old shops, buildings, and pubs have disappeared, along with the colourful people who patronised them. 

In this selection of nearly 200 photographs spanning late Victorian days to modern times, local author David Cuppleditch has captured the spirit of old Louth.  In a time before modern-day technology and attitudes swept away much of what old Ludensians still hold dear is here for the reader to remember.  Banana Bob, on Fish Shambles, sledging during the terrible winter of 1947, or, more recently, the opening of the bypass.

Bygone buildings and streets, many of the pubs supplied by local breweries, from Ye Olde Whyte Swanne to the Lincolnshire Poacher.  Famous local events such as the Wednesday Cornmarket Auction, the Sportsmen’s Week Dinner, and the Mayor’s Parade are depicted, as well as recollections of famous visitors, and popular Louth people.

This book will appeal to anyone who holds treasured memories of how Louth used to be, or who wishes to know what the town was like yesteryear.
