Lost King's Lynn (Paperback)

£14.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

In the 14th century King's Lynn (or Bishop's Lynn as it was known then) was England's most important port, with links to the Hanseatic League, and it continued to be a major port until the Industrial Revolution. The town suffered from aerial bombing raids in both World Wars but the major change in King's Lynn's fortunes took place in the postwar era when it was designated a London Overspill town and a large programme of new housing started on the outskirts. The town was redeveloped in the 1960s with many old buildings being replaced by a new shopping centre, which in itself has been regenerated in the last decade. Over this period new industries have come to the town and replaced the old, the most well-known of which was Campbell's Soup canning factory, and new housing estates built for the growing population.



Lost King's Lynn presents a portrait of a town and a way of life that has radically changed or disappeared today, showing not just the industries and buildings that have gone, people and street scenes, but also many popular places of entertainment and much more. This fascinating photographic history of lost King's Lynn will appeal to all those who live in the town or know it well, as well as those who remember it from previous decades.
