Kingston Bagpuize and Southmoor, a short history of, 'Village Millenium'

W R Carmichael. Facsimile of 1970 edition (Thematic Trails Trust, 2007) A5, 33pp

Originally written when these two villages in the Vale of White Horse (which was part of Berkshire until 1974) had recently been amalgamated. The chapters cover their early history and charters, the Domesday Book and the Middle Ages, Tudor and Stuart times, the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and up to circa 1970. There is also a chronological table of historical events, with maps of the villages in 1761 inside the front cover, and 1970 inside the back cover. This is a fascinating read.
