Take a door-to-door stroll through a typical Middle England village during the countryside’s golden decade – and discover the harsh realities and tender thoughts, not to mention the social and sports clubs, that made communities so strong in the days when rural poverty was taken for granted.
This book has been compiled by a journalist who has lived in the village for most of his 63 years yet surprised himself with some of his discoveries as he has striven to glimpse at every family who were there when Queen Elizabeth II was crowned.
Compiled with the help of residents’ recollections, newspaper archives and parish records, Coronation Village is laid out as a series of short walks in the hope that by retracing the steps of the Post-War generation, the reader can sense the community spirit that enriched villages in the days when there were more pubs and shops than televisions.
