Christine Scott One Parish Two Villages

North Huish and Avonwick

From : Christine Scott

This book traces the fascinating history of these quiet villages from grandeur to transportation to Australia. It is compiled from memories, official records and photographs.

This small country parish has a fascinating history from early settlements and important ancient manors, the growth of the villages around the grand families with their beautiful houses and large estates, through the coming of the railway, the changes in farming and social attitudes, to the life of the villages today.

There are many stories and memories from local families, of everyday life, working for the gentry, managing through difficult times, sport and leisure, famous people, and even a murder.

It is a large A4 hardback book with 120 black and white photographs.

Author Christine Scott was born in the South Hams and has lived near Avonwick all her life and been active in the local history society for over 30 years.

The book was published in December 2010, on Mrs Scott's 80th birthday. It is on sale in local shops and on the internet. Just put the title and author into a search engine.
