A heritage weekend is to take place in Thrapston to give people the chance to learn more about the area’s history.

It takes place on October 19 and 20 at the Plaza and admission is free.

Thrapston Heritage and Thrapston District Historical Society are joining forces to give residents and visitors an opportunity to learn about the history of the area.

Both organisations are keen to give people an opportunity at regular intervals to learn a little more about the place in which they live.

This exhibition is one of a series of events arranged during the year.

New displays have been prepared to show the area’s rich heritage which dates from the late Bronze Age through to modern times.

In addition there will be a First World War Presentation which will lead into next year’s commemoration of the start of the Great War.

Eric Franklin will be there to launch his second book, Forget Me Not, which is an account of life in Thrapston 1914-21.

This is a companion book to the Eric’s very successful In the Springtime of their Lives which chronicles Thrapston casualties in the First World War.

Anyone who has a photograph, but doesn’t know the identity of the person(s) in the picture, is invited to bring it along to ask our expert for an approximate date it was taken.

This often helps to narrow the search for the names of those in the photograph if they are family members.

The exhibition will be open from 10am to 4pm on Saturday, October 19, and from 10am to 2pm on Sunday, October 20.
