Little Bowden Village Institute
On Saturday I bought a copy of Boatbuilders of Market Harborough by Bob Hakewill and Michael Beech. How could you resist a title like that?
It mentions that Little Bowden Joinery in Queen Street used to fit boats out - and I can remember seeing hulls in their yard. But what is really interesting is that the authors say the company's premises, which it still occupies today, "used to be the Village Institute".
Something else to investigate.
