- The Changing Face of Brampton, Iain Parsons, Bookcase 1996, Carlisle, ISBN 0 9519920 6 0.
The town of Brampton has been central to the area's history for centuries. Mr. Parsons has, for years, been collecting photographs depicting the town as it has changed. His collection has now been published in a well done, 96 page book. Many wonderful photographs are used with commentary based on the author's knowledge and the reflections of those donating their old photographs. He uses extracts from turn of the century Ordnance Survey maps to show where long gone buildings once stood.
