Splendidly illustrated throughout, this survey looks at the social, geological, and architectural history behind the structure of English villages, and examines how industries, urbanization, transport, and changing traditions have influenced how we have been using and designing our buildings over the centuries. England is famous across the world for the beauty and variety of its village architecture, and this overview's commentary covers all manner of buildings—from churches, inns, and ships to maltings, watermills, and lock-ups. Lesser structures are also considered, such as wells, pumps, and stocks—all of which added to the appeal of traditional English villages and now provide valuable information on what life was like in centuries gone by. In our modern age of urban expansion and soulless building design, this reference presents a fascinating insight into these charming and much-loved structures which are still standing and possible to enjoy to this day.

An original and approachable account of how archaeology can tell the story of the English village. Shapwick lies in the middle of Somerset, next to the important monastic centre of Glastonbury: the abbey owned the manor for 800 years from the 8th to the 16th century and its abbots and officials had a great influence on the lives of the peasants who lived there. It is possible that abbot Dunstan, one of the great reformers of tenth century monasticism directed the planning of the village. The Shapwick Project examined the development and history of an English parish and village over a ten thousand-year period. This was a truly multi-disciplinary project. Not only were a battery of archaeological and historical techniques explored - such as field walking, test-pitting, archaeological excavation, aerial reconnaissance, documentary research and cartographic analysis - but numerous other techniques such as building analysis, dendrochronological dating and soil analysis were undertaken on a large scale. The result is a fascinating study about how the community lived and prospered in Shapwick. In addition we learn how a group of enthusiastic and dedicated scholars unravelled this story. As such there is much here to inspire and enthuse others who might want to embark on a landscape study of a parish or village area. Seven of the ten chapters begin with a fictional vignette to bring the story of the village to life. Text-boxes elucidate re-occurring themes and techniques. Extensively illustrated in colour including 100 full page images.

The English Village is a celebration of 86 of the finest villages England has to offer. From honey-coloured cottages in coastal Cornwall to the millstone grit of northern villages, this book sets out to investigate the origins of English villages - why, where and how they developed - as well as asking why it is that they so often elicit such a strong emotional response. Over 200 specially-commissioned colour photographs capture the fine details and charm of villages in 40 different regions of England, while the engaging and informative text sheds light on all aspects of village life, including the village green, inn, school, shop, church and customs. The history and character of each village is explored in depth, along with shorter accounts of other villages in the vicinity, including deserted villages. Regional building styles are examined and the stories of some of the people who brought these diverse settlements to life are revealed in this study of what is surely the very embodiment of Englishness.

The village remains a quintessential and much-loved treasure of the English countryside. This rural idyll has inspired generations of great poets, novelists and artists including the likes of Constable, Hardy, Wordsworth, as well as providing the picturesque setting for modern TV series such as Lark Rise to Candleford and Cranford. The English Village celebrates all that is unique and loved about a typical village - the pub, the green, the school, the church, the pond, the local shop and more - as well as exploring how the village has changed over the centuries. Also includes fascinating information on the origins of village names - Siddington, for example, means the farm of the valley (sidd: valley, in: belonging to, ton: farmland). Filled with facts, figures, customs and lore, there is a wealth of fascinating information to be discovered in this charming book.

As friends, the boisterous and brash American Beryl couldn’t be less alike than the prim and proper British Edwina. But as sleuths in an England recovering from the Great War, they’re the perfect match . . . 1920: Flying in the face of convention, legendary American adventuress Beryl Helliwell never fails to surprise and shock. The last thing her adoring public would expect is that she craves some peace and quiet. The humdrum hamlet of Walmsley Parva in the English countryside seems just the ticket. And, honestly, until America comes to its senses and repeals Prohibition, Beryl has no intention of returning stateside and subjecting herself to bathtub gin. For over three decades, Edwina Davenport has lived comfortably in Walmsley Parva, but the post–World War I bust has left her in dire financial straits and forced her to advertise for a lodger. When her long-lost school chum Beryl arrives on her doorstep—actually crashes into it in her red motorcar—Edwina welcomes her old friend as her new roommate. But her idyllic hometown has a hidden sinister side, and when the two friends are drawn in, they decide to set up shop as private inquiry agents, helping Edwina to make ends meet and satisfying Beryl’s thirst for adventure. Now this odd couple will need to put their heads together to catch a killer—before this sleepy English village becomes their final resting place . . .
