Product description

Before the Lake: Memories of the Chew Valley

Lesley Ross, ed

The Harptree History Society, 2004.

Soft-bound; 170 x 240 mm; xii & 186 pages. No dust jacket.

The book is in very good condition. The binding is sound & tight with no creasing of the spine.

“Contemporary photographs and maps illustrate this story.”
“This book traces, with a light touch, the long history of the valley, from its earliest known visitors over 10,000 years ago, through occupation by Romans, Anglo-Saxons, Normans and later residents. It also recounts why and how the valley was flooded. Its main theme, however, is to tell the story of what life was like in the words of the people who lived, worked and visited the valley, from around the 1930s to the 1950s, when people left their homes to make way for the rising waters.”
