A couple noted for their passion for local history have produced their first private publication, under their Boxmoor Books imprint, after years of volunteering their writing services to good causes.

Copies of Bourne End & Boxmoor Old and New by Roger and Joan Hands are hot off the press.

The collection of photographs, many of which are published for the first time, outlines some of the ways in which Bourne End and Boxmoor have changed over the last 200 years.

While not claiming to be an exhaustive history, the 128 pages give an idea of the many changes in a small, mainly agricultural area and in the local population.

The book, which costs £12, is available from the authors on 01442 393381, from Parry’s Newsagents and David Doyle’s Estate Agents in Boxmoor and the Watermill Hotel in Bourne End.
