Publications

 

 

The Society annually publishes "The Harborough Historian" jointly with Harborough Museum. First published in 1984 it comprises short articles and research projects of local history interest, covering the 40 or so parishes within a 10 miles radius of Market Harborough. Articles and photographs may be submitted to the editor (Dr David Holmes), for possible approval and inclusion. Members of the Society receive a free copy and copies are on sale in the local bookshops in the town. Some back copies may still be available.

 

 

 

 

The Society  also promotes the publication of books on subjects of local history research and interest and has recently (October 2015) published Barry Summers’ book “The Harboro’ Boys” which tells the stories of local men who went off to the Great War.

Our first book to be published was "Bless ‘Em All" by Pat Fox, illustrated by many of her personal photographs. She was a local member of the Womens Land Army, based at Lubenham and the book covers her experiences in the area during World War II. Copies of the book are available at the Museum and in local bookshops. The Harborough Movie Makers have made a film ‘Tales of a Land Army Girl’ based on her experiences.
