As local researcher, author and publisher behind Huthwaite Online I welcome all world wide web readers into sharing my long interest. Revealing fuller history of our Huthwaite village with ancestral roots.
My privately preferred method of contact will remain through the given email address. Postal contributions to my full home address will always be gratefully received, acknowledged with returns by requested means.
All contributions are gratefully received and acknowledged. Each will ideally be presented adding interest or reference among existing or many future planned subjects currently being compiled. Anything is of interest simply relating scenes, events or people in Huthwaite pre 1960, especially dated towards former names of Hucknall Huthwaite, Hucknall-under-Huthwaite even Dirty Hucknall, adding as much possible information.
I fully appreciate how owners hold great sentimental value on their prized family memorabilia. Please be assured, a clear copy is quite sufficient to enable any further digitised photo scanning or typed recording. Difficult or delicate originals can be safely recorded in house, (and being a keen biker I always look forward to enjoying worthwhile rides out), I'm more than happy arranging personal collection with quick safe return.
