Book Launched – Twice! And more material arrives immediately!
The book is now in the shops!
The Mayor of Colchester, Cllr John Elliott, officially launched the publication on 2nd December in the historic setting of the Red Lion Hotel.
The Deputy Mayor, Cllr Theresa Higgins, contributors to the book, local historians and archeaeologists and guests including senior staff from OMCI, the new owners of Grey Friars heard the story of its conception and viewed the accompanying website. Copies can be purchased from Red Lion Books, in Colchester High Street.
On Monday 8th December it was the turn of residents of the Grey Friars site (the Roman/Castle Roads area) to attend their own launch at the Foresters Arms – and to share their historic records, photos and stories associated with their houses.
A wealth of material was brought along and will soon be collated, edited and added to this site. Visit us again in the near future for more fascinating material.
(New items will be displayed in the News and Resources sections)
