Market Lavington Museum

Lucretia E Gye’s recipe book

At Market Lavington Museum we have many recipe books, which have been used in the village over the years.

Some are out on display whilst others, more fragile, are used for reference from time to time. One such is a handwritten recipe book which belonged to Lucretia Ethel Gye, known as Ethel. She was the mother in law of our museum founder Peggy Gye.

Ethel Gye

This is her book, inscribed inside with her name and address.

We will have a look inside next time.
