Signpost - Ellingham and Kirby Cane
The history of the villages can be traced back two millennia, as was documented so well in Jo Gooderham's A chronology of Ellingham & Kirby Cane (ISBN 978-1-5272-7471-6). The first edition was a sell out and is serialised on this site. Now updated, it is available for purchase from our local shop or the parish council (please contact the clerk).

Please note - The Chronology is in 'PDF' sections (PDF stands for Portable Document Format) which requires you to have Adobe Acrobat Reader software on your computer (most computers these days come with the Adobe Reader already installed, but if you haven't got the software on your computer - or you want to get the very latest version of it - visit the Adobe website, where you can download the software you need for free).
