The Guarlford Story
It is an account of Guarlford from pre-Roman days until the present time, with the emphasis on social activities and working environments over the last one hundred and fifty years.
It describes the dramatic changes that have taken place over the last five or six decades, how Guarlford has changed from a self contained rural community to one in which there is no longer a village school, where farms employ fewer workers, and all but one of the clubs and societies have vanished.
Nevertheless, Guarlford, as is evident from this account, is still a thriving, albeit different community.
The book has many interesting quality illustrations. For example the photo below, which begins the introduction to the book, that shows Lady Beauchamp opening a parish fete circa 1910.
