Leckhampstead Village, yesterday and today

Elizabeth Vera Setchell, 2010, A5, 290 pp

Leckhampstead is a small village of around 300 inhabitants. It lies close to the border of West Berkshire and Oxfordshire and is an area of outstanding natural beauty. The author takes the reader from the village’s earliest history in the Palaeolithic age through to the major local and national events up to the early 21st century. Names and photographs of some prominent families are included together with maps and other ephemera. With an index of surnames and a bibliography, this well illustrated book will be of interest to all those that are interested in the social history and rural life of a small English village, not just those with links to Leckhampstead.
