Soham book ready for launch

A 50-page collection of essays relating to Soham’s history has been compiled by town museum and 
history group members.

And it is set to be launched at the St Andrew’s Church Fete on June 14.

The Soham Journal Volume 1, will be the first in a series of annual journals containing four to five page long articles based on the two groups’ latest 

It covers topics such as 17th and 18th century sea trade, Soham railway 
station, lode and water transport, trade and 
commerce and a snapshot of Pratt Street businesses.

It also includes a poem by village college student, Zoe Crouch, and photograhs.

“It is a really nice 
eclectic mixture of lots of different articles and 
different ways of looking at history,” said 
museum chairman Donna Martin.

“It brings together lots of thoughts and ideas about the history of Soham.

“There’s lots of lists of businesses so people 
can look at it and see what their ancestors did in the town.”

The book will go on sale at Soham Books store in High Street for £6.50.
