Online responses are preferred because these go straight into a database which cuts down the data input work the group has to do.

Cover of the book The Black Death: An intimate History by John Hatcher

Walsham le Willows has a rich history that is based on the survival of exceptionally good 14th-century manorial records which led to Walsham being chosen as the setting for the fictionalised history The Black Death: An Intimate History, by John Hatcher set in the years following the summer of 1348 as the Black Death ravaged European society. 

John Hatcher used the excellent manorial records to ‘fill in the gaps’ for his story.

Walsham has had an enthusiastic and prolific history group since 1980 and it is still going strong. The group still meets regularly, and have produced a Brief History of Walsham, and comprehensive Reviews on particular aspects of Walsham’s historical record which have been published at the rate of three or four a year since 1997, and a selection of books and compact discs.
