The Book of Pimperne
The Book of Pimperne
  • Description
The village of Pimperne lies in a chalk valley two miles north of Blandford Forum on the road to Salisbury. The roots of the village have been long-since forgotten, but for centuries the daily round in Pimperne remained unchanged, determined by the rhythms of the seasons and the agriculture which served as the lifeblood of the community. Over a single generation, however, this way of life changed dramatically with the intervention of modern machinery forcing the traditional working methods to be cast aside. The villagers have had to adapt to a new way of life and The Book of Pimperne celebrates their story, looking back over the years to those whose lives have touched those of today’s generation; to those families and individuals who, through photographs and reminiscences, have given Pimperne a rich and vibrant history to treasure. The Book of Pimperne covers the history of the village from earliest times, but essentially celebrates the story of daily life in the community over the past 150 years. The book includes over 200 photographs, drawings, maps and other illustrations, accompanied by a lively text and detailed captions which put names to faces down through the generations. This superb book will be a valued heirloom for anyone living in Pimperne or for those who have family links with it. At the dawn of a new millennium, it is important to be reminded of the people and events that have shaped our communities, to celebrate the past and provide a stepping-stone to the future. ISBN 1841140686, hardback, 210x297mm, 160pages.
