Domesday - When I was in my last year at the school here back in 1986 we took part in a project called the Doomsday Project by the BBC. All the pupils took part giving an account of various aspects of the village at that time. We then saved these onto floppy disc and posted them to the BBC for archiving. All the information is now on the web as the project has been restarted. It's now called Doomsday Reloaded. "Click here to visit link""from Dave Hoyle (Bolton-by-Bowland)
