UNCOVERING THE HISTORY LECTERNS
Many authors writing about contemporary events know their books will be out of date immediately upon publication - such is the pace of life - and soon their precious work is old hat, often filed away in the local history shelf of the library. However, historical writer and Curator of the Brentwood Museum, John Fryer, has seen his work preserved in a unique and clever stainless teel medium. Six lecterns showing pages from his book BRENTWOOD - A CONCISE PICTORIAL HISTORY with clever illustrations, are there for all to see. Many residents and visitors have made their way to the town hall at Brentwood to view the lecterns, visit the Museum off Warley Hill (phone 01277 218854 for opening times) and to learn just that little bit more about this ancient town.
