History of Shawbury Book

Over 20 years ago Mrs Evelyn Lea researched local history to produce a booklet called 'Shawbury - the Village and its People'.

1,000 copies were printed with a further 200 copies
ordered following its initial success.

This website has received some enquiries from people researching their family history, so the time seemed right to reproduce the original.

Please also see the History of Shawbury link on the left hand side menu.

It is 6 pounds including postage & packaging

It has 53 pages and has chapters including: Early history, charities, village trades and industries, entertainment, amenities, interesting homes,
schools, characters, childhood memories, surrounding hamlets, RAF Station and families.
