A new, 3rd edition of Helen Allinson’s history of Borden.

The previous edition has been out of print for many years and has now been revised and brought up to the present day, with many new illustrations.

The new edition is expected shortly and should prove an excellent Christmas present for past & present residents of Borden, or those interested in its history.

Helen Allinson is an experienced local historian and author whose previous publications include histories of the parishes of Bredgar, Tunstall and Hollingbourne, ‘Life in the workhouse’, ‘The journal of a Victorian lady’ and ‘Farewell to Kent’.
