Kings Cliffe in Wikipedia
« Posted: 18 Nov 2011, 23:53:36 »
It's always been a bit of a mystery to me as to why the article on the village in Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kings_Cliffe,_Northamptonshire)  is so brief given that the village has a rich history and what appears to be a vibrant present.

Over the years I have done what I can to add to the article but being in the antipodes it's has been a bit hard to find material that can be referenced properly. Is there anyone who would like to see if we can work up the article to at least "good article" status?

I am happy to write and mark up the content if people can contribute info and images.

Brilliant idea.

I'd guess the obvious place from which to get information would be the Kings Cliffe Heritage Group. Sadly they've been remarkably quiet on this forum; perhaps this will give them something to get their teeth into :)

I'm sure Kings Cliffe Heritage are very busy people; I transcibed some old trade directories for them, which have a very long foreword on the history of Kings Cliffe; if you like to e-mail me, as Parish Clerk, I am sure they won't mind if I send you a copy kcpcclerk@aol.com
