With a foreword by Peter Hennessy, this book charts the social history of Britain from the late nineteenth century to the present day through the prism of our very own beautiful village, Knapton.
Through the direct testament of villagers, alive and dead, it tells the story of a small rural community through two world wars and the Cold War, revolution in agriculture, sweeping economic and social change, education reform and political transformation.
The text draws on the authentic written and oral memories of the inhabitants of Knapton: thus, while it presents a century and more of rural social history, it is seen and recounted from the experience of the people who lived it.
