  7. I have e-mailed you twice with the below, but each time I got a undelivered message.

    Having just read about your newly launched website (http://www.northamptonshirebootandshoe.org.uk/) in today’s online version of the Evening Telegraph I had a look at you website amd was disappointed to find that you have made no mention of Burton Latimer”s shoe industry. If you look at the Burton Latimer Heritage Society’s website (http://www.burtonlatimerinfo.org.uk/) you will see a section devoted to it.

    Also you have omitted Irthlingborough from the website where my Father worked in several of the shoe factories until the war and after his war service did hand sewing for various shoe manufacturers through out the county on a self employed basis. When he died his tools were donated to the Northampton Shoe Museum. The Irthlingborough Historical Society’s website (http://www.erdiburn.org.uk/) also has a section devoted to the town’s shoe industry.

    I hope you will find it possible to expand your website to included the smaller towns and villages who had shoe factories and which made a large contribution to the industry. I have brought this omission to the attention of the Burton Latimer Town Council, the Burton Latimer Heritage Society and the Irthlingborough Historical Society.

    Apart from this I found your website very interesting.

  8. Hi Godfrey

    Many thanks for your comments – we would like to include some information on Burton Latimer and Irthlingborough on the website and if ok I’ll use information from the websites you reference. I will look to have pages up for both towns later this year.

    Best wishes,
