New history of Awsworth published

Local historian, Bryan Maloney, has just published a history of Awsworth after spending over nine years working on it. Bryan's book covers churches, schools, the coal industry, transport, the magnificant Bennerley Viaduct (which runs over the Erewash valley), 17th century glass making, engineering and iron making, and politics.

The book costs £8 and can be bought direct from the author: 07943 165189.
