Welcome to "A History of Rickford", where you can find out about the people, buildings and activities of Rickford in past years. 


The Mill, The Bakery and The Chapel are well known.  But did you know that wine was once made in Rickford?  Or that there was once a cricket ground opposite The Chapel?  Or where the Huguenot refugees worked?  We hope you enjoy reading about these and the other things that created the Rickford of today.
