Hampton-in-Arden’s growth and development as a Warwick-shire village is carefully charted from Roman times to World War II and beyond. The village’s Saxon origins are explained and the story continues with descriptions of the village in the Tudor period and the changes incurred during the Industrial Age.
Details of the early years are followed by chapters dealing in depth with the Manor, the village’s churches, mills around the parish, the educational changes through the years and the coming of the railway.
Subsequent chapters look at inns, sporting activities, the impact of war on the village and the numerous organisations which continue to make up the social fabric of village life.
The book concludes with a look at some of the more prominent residents of the village through the years and a survey of some of the events and happenings which took place. The text is illustrated with many previously unseen photographs.
