"Lynsted Times" Editions

These eight titles were prepared in the run-up to the Lynsted Festival Weekend of 2016 from original research by Nigel Heriz-Smith. There are a few of such stories in his archive. For the Festival, there were 8 Issues under the general heading of "Horrible Histories". The focus on the "horrible" was intended to engage the minds of both children and adults. These stories are drawn from newspapers over the past 100 years and mostly come from our Parish (and nearby). Each "newspaper" can be read by opening the PDF copies linked below. Five more "Lynsted Times" were printed and widely enjoyed during the Lynsted War Memorial Exhibition, 10th November 2018.
