John's timely book on Bedworth.

JOHN Burton has published his latest book showing pictures of old and new Bedworth.

Bedworth rough Time is in the same series as John's Bulkington rough Time and Ansty, Barnacle and Shilton rough Time, both of which were published last year.

John said: "I am delighted to be able to do another book which uses colour pictures. Many of the old pictures in the book were taken by me in the 1970s and it is a huge advantage to see them in colour.

"e biggest problem for me was deciding what to include and there is already enough material for a second volume."

is is John's eight book, and his third on Bedworth. He has plans to do several more when time allows. e latest book, published by Amberley Publishing, is available at local book shops and at Bedworth Heritage Centre, as well as several local newsagents, priced PS14.99.
