A History of Swaffham National Schools by David Butters & Olive Wilson (Paperback)

A History of Swaffham National Schools by David Butters & Olive Wilson (Paperback)
In stock

David Butters was a citizen and historian of Swaffham through and through. He attended one of the schools about which he writes in this book, he served as a town councillor, he cared for the town museum and contributed other books and articles over the years. He completed the transcriptions of the schools’ log-books before he passed away and it is part of the tribute to him that the ear- ier documents are now published.

Sourcing material from the log books of the latter part of the 19th and early part of the 20th century, he paints a picture of life for the young people of the town, not just confined to their education but also their leisure time and pressures outside of school, such as the need to help with the harvest. We also get a view of special events in the Swaffham and the relationship between church and school, all doubtless repeated in schools in market towns across Norfolk and indeed the country.
