‘Barford Remembers‘; the second book published by Barford Heritage Group was released on Remembrance Sunday, 8th November, 2015, in the Memorial Hall.
This book describes life in Barford during during the first and second world wars using reminiscences from people in the village and newspaper articles from the time together with stories of the men who died and those who returned to live here. Barford Remembers also covers the people who came to live in Barford having been displaced by the wars.
Barford Heritage Group published this book using reminiscences collected over many years supplemented by archival research. It has 176 pages and lists the names of over 400 people who lived here during the years of both wars.
We are pleased to note that we have received a number of complementary reviews for this book. These reviews from present and past residents of the village and local historians praise the research work and clear format of the book and also commented on how enjoyable and easy it was to read.
Barford Remembers is available to purchase in the village shop at a cost of £12.
We are grateful to the Warwick Community forum and Warwick District Council for help with the costs of printing this book.
