Village church near Burnham-On-Sea puts historical records on show



Rarely-seen historical birth, marriage and death records from the past century were on display to the public at a village church near Burnham-On-Sea this weekend.

East Huntspill Church held an exhibition of parish records, some of which date back to 1911.

Organiser Myra Cox told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "This was a rare opportunity to look through the church's archives, which include the 1911 census records, photos, numerous historical documents and details about farm houses in the area. It was a real trip down memory lane."
