PEOPLE in the Eatons can find out how their area has changed in the past 200 years on the new heritage boards, which have been researched and designed by the Eatons Community Association.

Eight boards are being placed in various locations, including the village greens at Eaton Ford and Eaton Socon, near The Eaton Oak, Bunny Lane and Eaton Socon lock.

Each board has maps to show how the area has developed since 1800.

They also provide details about such places as the private boys' school in Ford House, Richardson's basket weavers, the Hail Weston Springs, in Gosshall, and Eaton Socon Rivermill.

Sue Jarrett, history co-ordinator, said: "Heritage boards are now being placed around the area, blue plaques should be with us very soon, and new village trails are being designed to help visitors and local residents to learn more about the past."

The boards have been funded by St Neots Town Council, Huntingdonshire Local History Society, the Rotary Club of St Neots St Mary's, and a Local Heritage Initiative Grant.
