In 1983, the Heanor and District Local History Society published a small volume entitled
“Heanor Then and Now”. It was popular and sold out fairly quickly, and has never
been reprinted. But if you were to look at it now, you would in many cases not be
able to see any “now” -
The book is only concerned with the town centre; if it is successful, then further editions will be produced to cover the other parts of our area.
The book, which is our first to be produced in an A4 format, has been prepared by the Society’s secretary, Clive Booth, who also took all the modern photos.
At just £6.00, Then and Now is a perfect gift for anyone who knows Heanor, or who knew it in the past.
The book can be purchased locally, as well as at meetings of the Society, or you can order it directly from this site.
