The Book of Porlock (pdf e-book)
  • Description
  • Related

Porlock has always had, and still retains, a vibrant, bustling atmosphere. Unlike so many other small communities, it has escaped the death of the village shop, the school, the village social life and clubs, and remains an active, thriving place. The main street still advertises the trades that have long served the villagers and Porlock is just as much ‘home’ as it has always been.

In this fascinating illustrated history, chapter headings include Early Times, The Court Leet, Principal Properties, Working the Land, Trades, Shops and Businesses, Church and Chapel, Education, Travel and Transport, Ale Houses and Inns, Prominent People, Memories of Village Life, West Porlock and Porlock Weir, Bossington, Porlock in Wartime and Leisure & Rural Pursuits.

Imprint: Halsgrove. ISBN 18 4114 154 2, 297x210mm, 160 pages. Published 1999, pdf e-book 2010.
