The twelfth issue of The Haddenham Chronicles was launched at the May Day celebration at Church End on 3rd May and is now on sale.

The articles range from the medieval to the present day and, as usual, there are some fascinating insights into our local history.

For example in Eve McLaughlin's article it was noted that the butcher John Morecroft (now Parminter's) was taking on apprentices from 1774. And in Will Strange's article we see that Genville's Manor was quite extensive and had six plough horses and twelve oxen in the 1330s. Also you can ponder on Michael Whitney's thing about tractors in his article on his childhood.

There are six other excellent articles and the index on the museum website is to be amended to include this latest issue. The colour is billiard green.
