Colchester: The Historic High Street

Saturday 16th June
11.00 am – 12.30 pm

Meet Dave Stebbings, who will be in the shop to sign copies of a new book  on Colchester’s Historic High Street, published by Colchester Civic Society.

About the book:

“Colchester The Historic High Street”, has been written by Dave Stenning with Richard Shackle and Jane Greatorex. One of the delights of this book is the beautifully detailed drawings of the timbered buildings which once lined the town’s High Street. Even today, some of those timbered buildings remain, although most are hidden behind a modern facade.

If you have ever been confused by all the technical terms relating to medieval and timber framed buildings, the detailed drawings and glossary in this book will help to explain all. A must have book for anyone interested in the architectural roots and history of Colchester.
