"Year by year, Brandon attracts an increasing number of visitors, drawn thither by the charms of its river and the fishing it affords, the interests of its archaic gunflint manufacture and curious furriery industry, and the peculiar fascination of the wild heaths and pine and larch plantations in the immediate vicinity. The issue of a guide will, it is hoped, be of benefit to the many who seek rest and recreation in Brandon or the villages round, as well as to the inhabitants who have hitherto been unable to obtain in any form such a description of the town and its surroundings." contents include chapters on: Brandon & District History; Grimes' Graves & Prehistoric Times; The Oldest Industry (gunflints); A Ramble through Highways & Byways of Brandon; & continued in the village of Weeting; and some Features of Interest in the Neighbourhood.
