The Historical Society have produced several publications which can be bought via this page (all prices include UK delivery – please click here and complete the form for a quote for overseas delivery charges).
We are also working on a sister publication to Here Lies Frittenden which records the burials in the new cemetery in Mill Lane.
A History of Frittenden
Subtitled “an obscure and inconsiderable parish”, the book by FHS Chairman Dr Phil Betts, really shows how wrong this statement is. It’s 300 pages charts life in the parish from pre-history to the 1970s, with many illustrations. There are also 11 appendices recording the landowners, farms and farmers, as well as those who served in WW1 and WW2.
Cost – £21, including P&P
The Millennium Map
A representation of Frittenden at the time of the millennium with contributions of homes and dwellings within the village, produced by the people who lived in them. Activities in the village, such as cricket and the school, were also incorporated. Local flora and fauna were shown within the map and the surrounding panels.
Cost – £8 including P&P
Here Lies Frittenden
A casualty of the the great storm of 1987 was a large cedar tree to the west of the church tower of St Mary’s. The loss of the tree’s protective canopy started a deterioration of some of the memorials and a second big storm in January 1991 reinforced the need for a recording of the churchyard memorials. This is the result of that work.
Cost – £15 including P&P
A Kentish Village in 1911
The Historical Society held an exhibition in 2011 showing what life was like in the village at the time of the 1911 census. This booklet is a record of that exhibition.
Last few remain – email us for availability.
The Great War and Frittenden
The Historical Society marked the one hundreth anniversary of the armistice which ended the First World War with an exhibition demonstrating the impact of the war on the village and the wider community. This book accompanied the exhibition.
Cost £12 including P&P
