Former Prime Minster Baroness Margaret Thatcher released her second autobiography, The Path to Power, in 1995 and attended a book signing at Grantham’s Guildhall.

The Path to Power was the second part of her autobiography and was of more interest locally as it contained her Grantham years.

Two years previously, Baroness Thatcher had been at the Guildhall signing copies of her first autobiography, entitled The Downing Street Years.

Queues formed from 5.30am and a special leather-bound signed copy was presented to her former school, Kesteven and Grantham Girls’ School.
