At a meeting of Thornton le Moor Show Society in January 1999, it was decided to commemorate the new millennium by a series of events and activities throughout the year 2000. Central to this theme was the production of a book which would reflect on the life and times of the village. Subsequently a group of residents have combined to produce a collection of photographs, facts, stories and thoughts, which together tell the story of Thornton le Moor.
