These books, published by the Northwich and District Heritage Society, are no longer in print.

 The Northwich Flood in 1946 - prize winning memories of local people. 8 pages, 9 illustrations.

The flood waters which hit Northwich on the 8th of February 1946 were caused by a freak combination of weather conditions. The effect was devastating particularly because the centre of the town was much more densely populated then. This booklet contains shocking photos and evocative accounts by two eyewitnesses bringing the events vividly to life.

 The Kenya Connection by Molly Keating 16 pages, 22 Illustrations

The historical connections between Kenya and this area of Cheshire are several, significant and not generally known. Author Molly Keating returned to live in Cuddington after 13 years working as a scientist in Kenya and describes the considerable contributions made by Lords Delamere and Egerton and the Brunner Mond company in this well researched and illustrated booklet.

Geoff Crompton

Local author, Geoff Crompton, was keen to ensure his books about Moulton's fallen should remain available to the public, now that they are no longer in print. 

Northwich and District Heritage Society are happy to help Geoff to achieve this.
