Congleton History & Guide by Joan P. Alcock

Book Description

Many Congleton residents will know the story of how the townspeople sold their Bible in the seventeenth century in order to buy a new bear, but details of other episodes from the town's history may be less well known. This engaging study, illustrated with over 100 photographs and a variety of other archive material, presents for the first time a chronological history of this Cheshire market town from Neolithic times to the twenty-first century. As well as recording the local developments that have taken place it also examines how world war affected the town and contributed to its story. A feature of this book is a pair of walking tours, which can be taken independently of the main text and allow the reader to explore Congleton's history through its existing streets, buildings and canal.
