This book faces the impossible. How to construct a viable history for a place whose earliest written record is a questionable entry in the Annals for 836 AD. This parish is always at the crossroads of events that wheel around it, never at the centre. And yet it can claim a provable continuity from the earliest settlement 3501 years ago. Ancient, contemporary and modern sources are evaluated for any relevance to this parish alongside the enduring patterns of stone and land shape. Brief notes point to a full bibliography. And there is an enclosed CD for further study that provides complete copies of original sources, thanks to enlightened permissions from the respective owners. The CD also includes an explosion of colour photographs taken over the last quarter century. So, a touch of both print and digital delight.
