Mortimer in the nineteenth century

Mortimer Local History Group, 2008 A4, 88pp.

This publication is dedicated to its founder, Colin Woodward (1921 - 2008), who was responsible for much of the society’s work on old maps, photographs and documents, and for their earlier publications. Nineteenth-century Mortimer, the group’s first, was originally published in 1980, and in the intervening 27 years much more information has become available. This new book is an improved edition using all the information gathered since. The result is a mixture of old and new text with photographs and illustrations. The centrefold is a clear sketch map of the village enabling readers to locate the sites mentioned.
