Discovering the history of Barrow Upon Soar......

Coronation 1953


Most of the photographs in this exhibition were taken by local photographer George Cocks (pictured). His legacy of some 10,000 negatives was pieced together and catalogued over a period of 8 years by David Pilgrim.
Keith Chaplin is now the guardian of the collection, and is gradually digitising them and striving to prevent further deterioration.

Our thanks also go to Barry Wilford for the press cuttings, and Kevin Stevenson for the "Twins" and money box pictures.
