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

Plymtree is not on a road to anywhere; if someone comes here it is by intention or because they are lost. But if the village is isolated, the villagers could not be less so.

What makes Plymtree so special is the welcoming people who live here, some of them parishioners since birth. Since its beginnings as a Saxon manor, Plymtree has always been based on farming and, surrounded by lush, peaceful countryside, this has remained largely unchanged – rather like the experience of coming here, for Plymtree demonstrates the traditional co-operative nature of English village life at its best.

The Book of Plymtree is drawn from the photographs and reminiscences of many individuals whose lives have been bound up in the parish. The result of their hard work is a unique record celebrating the changing face of daily life in Plymtree – in the family home and at work, and in times of hardship and prosperity.
