Voices of Chalford, Bisley & Bussage, Paperback / softback Book

Voices of Chalford, Bisley & Bussage Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

This fascinating book brings together the personal memories of people who lived and grew up in Chalford, Chalford Hill, France Lynch, Eastcombe, Bussage, Brownshill and Bisley during the last century.

Reminiscences range from childhood games, working days and memories of the war years, to shops, transport and some of the local characters.

Some contributors recall the donkeys that used to pull the barges along the Thames & Severn Canal, while others recount working life in the mills around Chalford.

The stories are complemented by over 100 photographs drawn from the private collections of the contributors.

This is community history at its best.
