New book has over 200 photos

TWO historians have teamed up to write a new book about Swinton’s rich heritage.

Councillor Ken Wyatt and accountant Giles Brearley have collated over 200 pictures showing how residents lived and worked in the town in A Swinton Pictorial.

Coun Wyatt said: “Many of the photos in the book have never been seen in the public domain before as they have been donated by people with local connections.”

The book costs £10 and is available from Brearley Accountants and from Swinton Heritage website.
