Village sense of place books.

Combined village companions, guided walks and reference books.

The following three booklets, edited by Peter Keene with Janet Keene and Jan Kelly were published by Thematic Trails for the Longworth and District History Society. The booklets may best be described as combined village companions, guided walks and reference books. The emphasis is upon the way that life in the village has been transformed during the last century, both as remembered by long-standing inhabitants and, as the speed of change increases, by those who have joined the village community more recently. These changes have been dramatic and today, call into question the term ‘village community’.
