This Saturday (September 27) at the Chorleywood Book Shop, is your chance to meet Watford author John Cooper. From 10am to 12pm John will be signing and talking about his new book Rickmansworth, Croxley Green and Chorleywood Through Time. The book looks at the history of King Edward VII’s visit to Croxley, Rickmansworth’s first railway station in 1862 and the scenery of Chorleywood. John, who has written seven historical books, said: “The books have been my retirement hobby. I collect old postcards from fairs across the South West. I find a postcard of interest and then research it further.” John then takes a photograph for a modern day comparison, focusing on before and after the war. The book is published by Amberley Publishing is available to buy at the Chorleywood Bookshop, WH Smiths and Waterstones.
