Helen Allinson launches new book on Bredgar

Home / Blog / Helen Allinson launches new book on Bredgar
This evening I attended a well attended book launch and excellent talk by local historian Helen Allinson about Bredgar.

Helen Allinson's new extended edition of the History of Bredgar provides a comprehensive account of the village from Roman times to the present with much new information.

The book explores the families, houses, life and work of the parish. 

It uncovers the history of the Roman treasure, the Chantry, Thatcher’s charity , the church, the Methodist chapel, the village school, Sun Inn & Manns Place.

The story is told of Ashley Goatham, the soldier who died in the Zulu Wars. 

The men of the village who gave their lives in the First and Second World Wars are remembered here.

It will be on sale shortly from the Bredgar farm shop, the Heritage Museum shop in the Forum and Oad Street Craft Centre or via
