Thanks Edward, you have put us on the map!

The bar at the Ebrington Arms was packed at lunchtime today as local historian Edward Mayor launched his fascinating historical map of Kirkby on Bain. Copies were selling fast at a fiver each and Edward was thrilled at the response to his latest initiative.


If you missed the launch or you want more maps, A3 size copies are now available at The Ebrington Arms.

Names such as Sir Joseph Banks, Sir John Betjeman, John Stanley Richardson, Viscount Ebrington and Richard Brocklesby appear in the notes, as well as acknowledgements made to village people who helped Edward with this collaborative project.
