Brand New Book
Local historian Geoff Sandles returns with the final book in the series of Gloucestershire pubs Through Time, and takes us on a journey down the River Severn from Tewkesbury to the Vale of Berkeley, covering the pubs in the City of Gloucester and its suburbs. From isolated riverside inns to bustling city pubs this selection of archive images is sure to impress, and will bring back memories of the bygone era and the humble public house. With the rise of supermarket trades, the habit of drinking and the pubs themselves have changed significantly in recent years. It is with this in mind that such buildings drenched in social history should not be forgotten. With beautiful scenery and an array of welcoming inns, now is the perfect time to thumb through this collection of timeless old photographs that take you on a journey around Gloucester, Tewkesbury and the Severn Vale.
The book will delight anyone who has lived or grown up in Gloucester and Tewkesbury, as well as people with a more general interest in the social history of this part of Gloucestershire and beyond....
