Queen Edith’s Timeline

This is a document containing in date order extracts from newspapers and diaries about Queen Edith's

The document here is a compilation of newspaper stories and other writings with a connection to Queen Edith’s. We are very grateful to archivist and local historian Mike Petty who over the years sifted through local papers and assembled the core of the newspaper stories reported here. To these have been added extracts from earlier newspapers and diaries.
