The inaugural meeting of the Lavenham Local History Group was held on 13 May 2019, chaired by Christopher Bornett, a local historian. The Lavenham HIstory Forum and Blog was created by Christopher to augment the nascent group, which never held another meeting. A twice-yearly publication was planned, entitled 'Signposts to Local History'.  Two issues were published before Christopher passed away in 2021. Joan, his widow, has allowed access to the inactive blog and its articles, two of which are included in this website's Documents section. Both issues of 'Signposts...' can also be found in that section.

Christopher also transcribed the 1841 and 1851 censuses for Lavenham, which are included in the Research pages.
