Sheepscombe book cover
From remote hunting ground for the rich to thriving industrial village;  from grinding poverty and decay to peaceful haven from city life;  this book tells the story of a hidden corner of Gloucestershire, out of sight behind the Cotswold edge.

A wealth of evidence for the Sheepscombe valley is explored, giving insights into the lives and activities of real people, spanning one thousand years of history.  Photographs, some over a hundred years old, vividly illustrate the changes over the years.

If you know this valley, this book will deepen your knowledge.  If you enjoy the detective work of local history, then the study will stimulate debate.  If you appreciate Gloucestershire, then this story of an industrial Cotswold valley will draw you in.
