This booklet describes aspects of our Parish as it responded to Royal events from the time of Queen Victoria's Coronation to 2012.
In planning this publication, the Lynsted with Kingsdown Society Committee took as their inspiration the many national and local celebrations of ‘royal events’ in 2012. As we dug more deeply, we discovered how such events have touched on the lives of local people in and around the Parish.
The sub-group added some research, to help the reader understand what the conditions were like in our Parish at the time of each of our ‘royal celebrations’.
The Society Committee wishes to acknowledge the generous contribution of photographs and other material used in this project, the transcribers, the author for bringing it all together, the proof-readers, alongside the countless more who have helped us identify people in the photographs used in the publication. This has been very much a collaborative effort.
