Sand, Planes and Submarines - The Leighton Buzzard Area in WWI

Venue: York House Centre, London Road, Stony StratfordYork House Centre, London Road, Stony Stratford
Date: 28 Jan 2019
Time: 19:30 to - 21:00

By the early years of the twentieth century, the market town of Leighton Buzzard was at the centre of the most fashionable hunting scene in the country and already had industries which would suddenly become much more important.

While researching the more serious aspects of local life - and death - during WWI, members of the Leighton Buzzard Historical and Archaeological Society uncovered some surprising stories about the town and the surrounding villages. All of this new information was published by The History Press in Sand, Planes and Submarines, at the end of 2018.

Delia Gleave, co-editor of the book, will be telling us about some of the unexpected effects of WWI on the home front and it’s more than likely that there will be a fair bit of laughter and a few songs among the stories
