West Deeping remembers 1919 by Maggie Ashcroft sheds light on life a century ago

The author of a newly published book, West Deeping remembers 1919, used the Stamford Mercury Archive for providing access to information for the work.

Local historian Maggie Ashcroft dug out several articles on the village, which are stored in bound copies of the newspapers at the archive in Stamford.

She said: “I owe a great debt of gratitude to whoever was the village correspondent for West Deeping in the years just after the Great War - even though some weeks it would be just a tiny snippet of information.”
