From the rear side cover: This fascinating collection of over 200 images of Frampton Cotterell and Coalpit Heath has been compiled using photographs from the archives of the Frampton Cotterell and District Local History Society and from local residents' personal collections.

As well as providing a photographic record of village street scenes and buildings this compilation also gives an insight into the everyday life of the people who have lived, worked and played in the area since the end of the nineteenth century. The pictures include class groups of all the local schools, neighbourhood shops and merchants, organisations and groups, tradesmen and industry and a section on the now defunct coalmines.

Each image is accompanied by an informative caption, bringing the past to life and describing aspects of life in historic hamlets such as Brockeridge, Frampton Common, Goose Green,Adams Land and North Corner. However, the main focus is on the people who made up this community, featuring many faces which will still be recognisable to the readers today. This pictorial history will delight anyone who has lived in or has associations with Frampton Cotterell and Coalpit Heath, inspiring memories of more tranquil times and a more peaceful village life.


The book will delight anyone who has lived or grown up in Frampton Cotterell or Coalpit Heath, as well as people with a more general interest in the social history of this part of Gloucestershire and beyond....
