St Laurence.


80 pages. Prefaced by Peter Jerrome the book contains the recollections of Harold Roots, who having left the village in his youth looks back many years later to a period before The Great War when Lurgashall was still very much a self-contained community, enjoying a pace of life matched by the relative isolation of the village. Roots has a remarkable power of recall which enables him to transport the reader on a virtual tour of the village that he left many decades earlier. While the characters that Roots knew as a child have long gone, these recollections are witness not as one would expect to how much has changed in the village during the twentieth century but rather how little the outside world has encroached upon it.
