John and Tricia Booth created this page as an offshoot of Tricia’s village website.

That website (the-snorings.co.uk) is about Little Snoring and Great Snoring, two small villages in East Anglia, UK (Norfolk).

When creating the website, Tricia used much material from her own family. Amongst precious keepsakes from her great great grandmother were two notebooks containing folk remedies. One was dated 1876 and the other was 1869.

The notebooks themselves can be viewed here in their original form. (1867 and 1879)

It was decided to make a transcript of the folk medicine to preserve it and share it with the public. This blog hopes to do just that. It is rather a static blog, but you may comment on the posts if you would like to.

John and Tricia do not live in Norfolk. They can be contacted by going to the contact page of “The Snoring Villages” website.
