Last Thursday, seven villagers and one former resident turned up at St Mary’s Church to meet local historian, writer and artist Edward Mayor and his dog Sandy, for the much-anticipated historical walk around Kirkby on Bain, advertised here earlier. And they were not to be disappointed, despite the torrid heatwave conditions.
The walk started off in the cool of the Church as Edward introduced himself and gave us a summary of the earliest history of the village, one of several Kirkbys in Lincolnshire, some of which were mentioned on Edward’s historical map, from the Domesday reference to Cherchebi onward. The group then set off on a circular route along by the canal to Swandrift bridge, stopping at the probable sites of the gravel barge wharf and the old oak bridge for explanations, questions, answers and comments.

CAMEO CLUB OF KIRKBY ON BAIN AND ROUGHTON- July Meeting
On 17th July Sadie Hirst from Woodhall Spa gave us a very interesting talk called ‘Off the Beeton Track’ Vintage Cook Books.

She feels baking is ‘in her blood’. She said that cookery books speak much more than just the recipes but that she has found all sorts of interesting items within the pages detailing often the life history of the person who owned them and often contained a social record of the time.
