Cloughton High Street around 1890

This book was researched and written by village people. The idea for the book began with the late Harold Whitfield, surveyor to the Duchy of Lancaster, who, with a group of villagers formed a village history group whose aim was to research and begin a village history.

Harold died before the book was finalised; in 1999 the Cloughton Millennium Committee decided to finish and publish the book to mark 2000 years of history.

The book goes right back in time to the Bronze Age settlers in the area, then through the Romans, Vikings and the Middle Ages to more modern times and the present day. It will be interesting to everyone who knows and understands the life and people of the community and tells the story of people, events, happenings and village organisations which have been and gone.
