The Nottinghamshire town of Beeston as we know it today began life as an Anglo-Saxon settlement close to the banks of the River Trent. By the late eighteenth century the town had developed into a thriving textile centre. The nineteenth century saw a new mix of other industries, including famous names like the Humber Works and Boots the Chemist. Over the last decade Beeston has witnessed its greatest change with the introduction of an extension of Nottingham city’s tram network.


Local authors and historians Frank E. Earp and Joseph Earp delve into the town’s murkier past in this unique approach to its history, blending the serious with the not so serious, and seeking out its hidden secrets.
