Since 2012, Professor Ged Martin has contributed a regular local history column to the Romford Recorder.
He has collected together around 130 of these columns into a book-length file, Havering History Cameos, which is available (for free) here.
Subsequently, Professor Martin has published a further 25 columns (which first appeared in the Romford Recorder between November 2015 and June 2016) as More Havering History Cameos, available here.
Each column was written to around 540 words, and designed to stand alone, so the collection can be dipped into.
Both collections can also be searched by key words to locate stories about districts within the Borough.
