Beloved Of My Heart


The first aim of the Society was to produce a book to encompass a way of life that was fast disappearing.  Hillsborough has a unique history, and a reflection on the people, events, and memories of life in the days of long ago makes a fascinating story.  Our aim was to document this before it disappeared for ever.  The contribution made by local people has been outstanding.  They have gone out of their way to supply information, reminiscences and photographs, and gave us every encouragement. Four years have culminated in the production of this book, which provides an insight into the history of Hillsborough and, more importantly, village life.

As It Was
