The Book of South Brent
The Book of South Brent
  • Description
South Brent, or just Brent as she is known to the locals, stands where the Avon leaves the bleak and dangerous southern Dartmoor heights and begins its journey through the tranquil South Hams. South Brent has long been a busy commercial centre straddling the main road and rail routes across the county of Devon. It is on the moors that the story of South Brent begins with Bronze Age Man. It continues with a Celtic saint and was influenced by the monks of Buckfast. Other features of its long and varied history include a horrific murder akin to that of St Thomas of Canterbury that took place in the church, its busy market which rivalled those of its neighbours and Englandís first civil servant. All this, and much more, is detailed in this 160 page book, copiously illustrated throughout with over 350 historic photographs of the places and people who have made up the thriving community of South Brent and its surrounding parish.
