This long-awaited memoir looks back at the changes in Saffron Walden over the past 70 years, recalling the architects, builders, shopkeepers and business people who created the community, the memorable characters who filled its streets and the farmers who gathered in this traditional market town. Down Bridge Street, Church Street, Castle Street, Gold Street and the other thoroughfares of the town, we wander in the author’s company as he points out interesting features of buildings and stories of those who once lived, worked and played there. Packed with over 270 photographs, this unique oral history is a hymn to the world we have lost, recording fond memories of a way of life gone forever.
