Description

The quiet town of Newent with its surrounding villages in the north-west of Gloucestershire has many similarities to nearby rural Herefordshire. This beautiful area has fine half-timbered buildings and the town boasts a good array of Georgian and Victorian buildings which, together with the fine timbered Market House, result in Newent remaining the epitome of an unspoilt English market town. This book records the changes in the town and its vicinity from the late Victorian times through to the 1950s. Changes in the street scenes and the fashion in clothes, together with the evolution in transport, are all depicted here. From daffodils to the demise of the railway, Tim Ward has succeeded in bringing together an evocative collection of photographs and postcards from Newent and around.
