Lincolnshire Living Memories

Malcolm Knapp Francis Frith

Lavishly illustrated with fine quality photographs from the world-famous Francis Frith Collection. There are 128 pages, rich in detail. This is a fascinating portrait of life and times long since changed. Each photograph (with date) is explained with a description of how things were and are now such as:

Branston Hall Hospital c1965: Built during the years 1884 and 1886 for Lord Vere Bertie, later became a sanatorium, then a home for the retired and is now the 50-bed Branston Hall Hotel. The round turret by the side of the main entrance with its ogee cap looks very much like a windmill tower. Binbrook: The church of St Mary and St Gabriel was built in 1869. A far noisier centre was established nearby when RAF Binbrook was built during the Second World War. This was one of the many Bomber Command airfields built in Lincolnshire during those fateful days. A new village, Brookenby, is now located on the old airfield site. Glentham, Moncks Arms Hotel, Caenby Corner 1953. This building is now derelict. A sign of the times is here in the form of the AA box (right) with two AA patrol men going across the road for a quick one! The three men wearing peaked caps (centre right) could well be airmen from one of several nearby airfields; one of them, Hemswell, is now a very large antiques centre. The signpost (left) is a mass of information; there is now a large traffic island at this dangerous crossroads. The A15 is in fact a Roman road.
