St Johns

The boundaries of what I think of a St Johns & Hook Heath may not be the same as your interpretation, and any local authority or ecclesiastical boundaries may well have changed over time, so if you cannot find what you are looking for in this section, it may be in a neighbouring area or perhaps one of the more general sections.

For instance, I have included in this section items on the Hermitage & Inkerman Estates, and the area of Wych Hill down to the railway junction, but not the lower slopes of Hook Heath along Saunders Lane and Blackhorse Road (which I have included in the section on Mayford). Some parts of what you might think of as St John's may also be found in the Goldsworth & Goldsworth Park section.

I have tried to divide the archive into logical sections to make finding things easier, but this is not a comprehensive list of items in my archive, just an indication of some of the pre-2000 items I hold, so if you cannot find what you are looking for please ask.

Not everything has been scanned, but those that have are highlighted in blue on the list, so if you find something listed in white that you are interested in please let me know and I will try to get it up on this site as soon as possible.
