“The richly illustrated book, published by The History Press, looks at Ely from the earliest times to modern day,” say the bookshop.

“It recalls pivotal events and people that have shaped the city.”

The launch on Thursday was followed by a signing session at Burrows on Saturday.

Annabel Reddick, of Burrows Bookshop, said: “The Burrows shops are part the history of Ely, so it seemed only fitting that we should help Mike celebrate the publication of this lovely book.
