The Witham Staple is mandated to reflect what is happening in our Lincolnshire community (i.e. the villages of Aubourn, Bassingham, Carlton le Moorland, Norton Disney, Stapleford, Thurlby, Witham St Hughs and the rural areas surrounding these villages).

This page carries some old photographs of our community.  These are a selection included here mainly drawn from the collection kept that used to be kept in the Heritage Room and old newspaper cuttings.  If you have any more information about them please let us know.

The Witham Staple invites you to submit old photographs that provide an insight to our community in times past. If you would like to send a photograph for possible inclusion on this page please e-mail info@withamstaple.com a digital file preferably in .jpg format or contact the Web Editor about having printed originals scanned.  

Decisions on which photographs to include here will depend upon space and content and be made by the web editor.
