New local history book

Our friends at Radcliffe on Trent Local History Society, (who did the recent churchyard survey for us), have published a new local history book by author Beryl Cobbing.  Archaelogical evidence indicates signs of early human activity in the Holme Pierrepont area; a permanent Anglo-Saxon settlement was well established before the Norman conquest. At the end of the 13th century the Pierrepont family became lords of the manor.
This book follows the lives of the men and women who lived and worked in the parish and manor of Holme Pierrepont from medieval times to the first national census. Having 288 pages, it is a fascinating read with many colour photographs and illustrations which bring to life the lives of ordinary men and women. Their lives were affected by being tenants of a great family, and the unpredictable natural forces of the River Trent which formed the estate’s northern boundary.
