Brand New Book

This book is a unique insight into the illustrious history of one of England's most treasured villages. Reproduced in full colour, this is an exciting examination of Redbourn, and what it has represented over the years, from its start as the centre of a farming community to its modern exports of watercress and flour. Looking beyond the exquisite exterior of these well-kept photos, readers can see the historical context in which they are set, and through the author's factual captions for every picture and carefully-selected choice of images, the reader can achieve a reliable view of the city's history. Readers are invited to follow a timeline of events and watch the changing face of the town, as Geoff guides us through the village streets. There is something for everyone here, whether they have lived in Redbourn all their lives, or whether they are just visiting this fabulous city. It also shows how photography has continually evolved to keep up with an ever changing society.

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