South Cotswold Pubs Through Time is the perfect combination of English inns and quintessential Cotswold scenery. In a celebration of the special variety of pubs in this locality, timeless old photographs of these honey-stoned buildings are paired with modern equivalents, making this a journey back in time as well as around these pretty towns and villages in Gloucestershire. In his fourth book in the series of Gloucestershire pubs Through Time Geoff Sandles has selected the South Cotswolds; a large geographical area encompassing Cirencester, Fairford, Lechlade, Tetbury, Dursley and Wotton-under-Edge. From traditional town pubs to lavish country inns, join Geoff as he explores how pubs have had to adapt to cater for changing modern lifestyles.
A fan of real ale, Geoff Sandles was the editor of Gloucestershire CAMRA's Tippler for ten years. A chance discovery of two old books in Gloucester library documenting all licensed premises that once existed in Gloucestershire in 1891 and 1903 inspired Geoff to discover the location and history of thousands of bygone county pubs. The meticulous study has been posted on his highly acclaimed website - www.gloucestershirepubs.co.uk, a valuable resource for local historians.
