A former Great Baddow student has finally seen her book about the village published  - 50 years after it was written. Christine Goldstone, nee Steele, (pictured below) wrote 'The Study of Great Baddow' back in the 1960's but her work remained unpublished until local historian Allen Buckroyd became involved.

Allen typed up the handwritten study for the Great Baddow archives and the book is now published and on sale for £10. The book is also available at the library. For further information on how to buy a copy of the book please contact Christine at:
