Through photographs taken from the 1870s onwards, this profusely illustrated book shows the development of, and changes to, the shops and other buildings in the town's main commercial thoroughfare. This is a revised 2021 edition of the original 2011 publication.
This booklet documents the 19th and early 20th century Courts of the town. It is written and illustrated by an ex-Ashby School and present Oxford University student, Josh Bancroft, and details the lives of the, mainly, poor inhabitants who lived in what we would now regard as 'slums'. These were to be found down the alleyways of Market and Wood Streets and in the Green, Millbank and the Callis. For additional information on the Courts & Yards of Ashby see Past & Present journal, issues No. 6 & 14.
