The Colton History Society wiki.

Please note we are in the process of updating the mediawiki software which runs this wiki. Please report any missing pictures or links via email to admin@coltonhistorysociety.org.uk.

This wiki has been established to enable queries and information about Colton and its past residents to be shared and communicated. It is also a mechanism for questions and corrections to be communicated about the societies book on Colton published in April 2008. Copies of this book can be purchased via the societies web site [1].
