'Flackwell Heath, The Making of a Chiltern Village' by Gwenda Grange

Rear cover notes

It was the spring of 1998 and the search was on for someone to update the history of Flackwell Heath for a millennium project. For two residents, Denis Barber and Gwenda Grange, the challenge was irresistible.

Denis Barber brought to the project a proven track record as a local historian. Gwenda Grange brought a passion for research and a love of writing. The result is a fresh, informative and highly readable account of how this Buckinghamshire village grew up revealing just how much history is hidden behind the village's modern facade.

From the elusive Flaecca to the law-breaking Richard de Flakewell, from the bargeman who lived here in the 1680s to the beer seller at the heart of the paper riots, from the legendary bird-starvers and the kindly Victorian school mistress to today's senior citizens with their teeming memories of how things were, this is a book that celebrates the human history of Flackwell Heath.

All copies have now been sold, the local Bucks library should have copies, if a new batch is reprinted the details will appear here
