The Book of Hemyock (pdf e-book)
The Book of Hemyock (pdf e-book)
  • Description

Hemyock - Heart of the Blackdowns chronicles the history, people, life and times of this centre of the western part of the Blackdowns and shows how changes over the years and historical events have made current day Hemyock such a unique village.

Hemyock is situated on the upper River Culm in the heart of the Blackdown Hills of the Devon/Somerset borderlands. For many years the distinct and beautiful scenery of this area remained largely unknown, not only to tourists visiting the West of England but also to many living in the West Country outside the Blackdown Hills.

In this thoroughly researched book Brian Clist and Chris Dracott compile a wealth of material made available by fellow parishioners and chronicle the changes to village life over the years from The Hemyock Hundred in Saxon times, the arrival of the Cistercian monks in the 13th century, the defence and evacuation plans of Napoleonic times, through to the development of the first butter-making factory in the West of England and the very first Young Farmers Club in the country. This is a superb celebration for all those who live in or have a connection with Hemyock.
