The heritage covers Market Rasen, and the areas abounding the river Rase as a locator. There is now a separate section on Middle Rasen as we have now completed research of much, but not all, of its story in the early part of the 20th century.
We are continually adding content to make it as in-depth as possible. It will always be changing as we learn more from our research.
