Domesday Book could be on show

A commemorative edition of the Domesday Book could be put on permanent display in Whittington’s new community hall.

The edition was one of a limited number printed containing historical information about the parish.

It was among an inventory of assets of the previous village hall that could be transferred to the new replacement building, which is due to open in July.

During a meeting of Whittington Parish Council member Susan MacLeod asked whether the book could be available for the hall’s opening event.

Parish council chairman Steve Burrows said he had been discussing with community hall chairman Malcolm MacLeod potentially having a cabinet made so the book could be displayed in the new building.
