An English Village Through the Ages.2 inch closed tear to d/j Ten years ago, John Tregorran, a former university lecturer, began to write the history of the people of Ambridge - one of Borsetshire's most typical villages. Then, in 1978, farmer's wife Jennifer Aldridge and her friends decided to trace the history of their parish through the landscape, by studying the fields, hedgerows and wildlife of the area. The results of both surveys are here combined, making a lively, humorous and lovingly researched account of an English village - a village of the Shires - through old docuements and photographs as well as twelve sketches of Ambridge today by local artist, Caroline Bone. In this book the people of Ambridge write about their village, the people who lived on and farmed the land befroe them, and the changes that have befallen the landscape through the centuries. It is the story of one small - but treasured- corner of England. Illustrated. 146pp.
