Members of the Hough Green Local History Group have researched and written a book of the history of area.
The book, From Bricks to Villas, is the story behind the main route from Chester to North Wales and Ireland that was also an area of industry.
Only in the last 150 years has it been transformed from Chester’s major brick-making site to a prestigious residential area.
The authors of the book are: Ray Carpenter, Pam Corkerton, Carol Farrell and Mike Lloyd and it details the story of Hough Green over the last 600 years from the mighty to the mundane.
Ray said: “It takes 144 pages of quality paper with a wealth of images to enhance that tale. As far as we know, there are no other history books covering this location so the book fills a gap in the literature. With much financial and other support from the Hough Green Residents’ Association, From Bricks to Villas was published on March 3."
The authors will present the book at Chester History and Heritage Centre on Friday, April 24 from 10am-4pm (closed for lunch noon-1pm).
The book, priced £14.95 is available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling: Carol on 01244 674955, Mike on 01244 680328, Pam on 01244 680277 or Ray on 01244 671684.
