Topics include: Belton’s Open Field System The Great Air Race of 1911 using the censuses in local history research updates to the Society’s Belton at War journal (vol 4) emigration from Belton Littleworth Wardley Hill local archaeology the inns and alehouses in Belton and Allexton. Apart from being such an enjoyable read - I remember well the walk with my parents down to the ‘Bridge Foot’ at Allexton and the resulting red lips after drinking the Vimto, and searching for the blue salt packet in my crisps - it is an extremely useful resource for local historians. I look forward to the next publication in this series. Sheila Sleath
