Hello folks, I'm John Abbott from a small Hamlet in Northamptonshire called Ringstead. Four years ago i started Ringstead Heritage group. The village is the birthplace to Maggie Thatchers Father Alfred Roberts and as a child, she stopped in the village in her school holidays, another old Surname "Tuttles" lived in the village in the 15th century. Ringstead papermill in the 19th century supplied paper to Jane Austen (1815) and the village was prominent in the 19th century for making Boot & shoes from its three factories. Thanks John.
