Peterborough In Detail

Peterborough and its Villages in Detail

Published by the Society, this is a hardback book covering the fascinating architectural detail of our distinctive local buildings. It includes over 850 superb photographs taken by members of the Peterborough Photographic Society.

Here are some of the reviews we received:

Griff Rhys-Jones, President of the Victorian Society .... a ravishing document, a visual cornucopia, a fascinating sourcebook of architectural detail

Ancient Monuments Society ..... a quite outstanding book .... a scholarly informed text revelling in the variety of architectural detail and craftsmanship

Living Villages .... Peterborough Civic Society deserves unreserved credit for this sumptuously produced celebration of the many, sometimes gloriously idiosyncratic, architectural details that adorn the buildings of Peterborough and the many villages within its rural environs

and some comments from purchasers:

A masterpiece of selection ... the text genuinely illuminating and the production quality first rate

A most appealing record of a host of beautiful local architectural features .... the text is informative and informed ... I shall treasure my copy

Beautifully photographed, thoughtfully laid out .... the text is just right .... a superb book

Peterborough Civic Society

DVD RAF Peterborough (Westwood Airfield)

The DVD tells the story of Westwood Airfield from its origins after World War 1 through to the 1970s through archive film and interviews local historians and with people who have first hand memories of life on the airfield.

Aircrew were recruited from around the world and many received some of their training at RAF Peterborough as a flying training base. The former airfield now forms much of the site of the housing neighbourhoods of Westwood, Ravensthorpe and Netherton, and the Westwood industrial estate

The DVD is priced at £10.00. Order online or print off and use our order form. To see front and rear of the DVD sleeve click on the image.

It was produced for the Society by Blue Slate Media.
