Book Cover

Many of you will know that Tattenhall Local History has produced a new, 62-page full colour book entitled 'Tattenhall — A Community United by War' which is a direct outcome of community requests to publish some of our findings.

It was intended to hold the book launch to coincide with the 75th Anniversary of VE Day on 8 May 2020.
Regrettably, the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in the cancellation and postponement of this event.

Covering both conflicts, the content of the book seeks to raise awareness about the individual war experiences of many local men but also explores what life was life for those men and women who remained at home and of the individual and collective challenges that they experienced.

Much of the content within the book is completely new and seeks to complement information which can be found on the Tattenhall Local History Website — www.tattenhallhistory.co.uk

  • Weather permitting, the books will be available on Sunday 8 November when Terri Hull and Yvonne Keeping will be socially distanced near to the 'Vault Entrance' of St Alban's Church at the time of the Remembrance Service
  • We are requesting a donation of £10 per copy — to be equally split between the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal and maintaining the Local History Website (please have the exact money to hand)
  • Only a small print run was undertaken — if you prefer to order a copy in advance, then please contact Terri Hull on 01829 770026 and leave a message on the answer machine (Yvonne/Terri will deliver copies to your door if required).

Special thanks to our sponsors — Gifford Lea, SPAR Tattenhall, Tattenhall and District Parish Council and the Tattenhall Business Alliance. Importantly, we are indebted to the many residents who have kindly provided personal photographs, documents and artefacts.

A 'must have' local history of our incredible village — don't miss it!
