OutputSeries of booklets on the history of Brightlingsea
Over the years we have published ten booklets  - the Brightlingsea Heritage Series -  each telling the story of some aspect of growing up, living and working in the town as remembered by those who were there.   The group established a number of working protocols, pro forma letters and information sheets to ensure people understood who we were and what we were doing, to assure confidentiality and to confirm that nothing would be published without prior permission. The next project, The Pubs of Brightlingsea,  is in preparation
