Wootton Bassett One Hundred Years Ago – The Country

Wootton Bassett One Hundred Years Ago is the ultimate guide to the history of the town and its surrounding countryside during the post-Edwardian era. The series comprises three volumes: ‘The Great War’, ‘The Town’, and ‘The Country’, which together form the much extended and improved successor to my 2014 book ‘Wootton Bassett in the Great War’. I have more than doubled the research in the original book – which is why it has had to be split into three!

Volume three, ‘The Country’, is in preparation. It will cover Stoneover Lane, Nore Marsh, Woodshaw, Marlborough Road to Goldborough, Bincknoll, Cotmarsh, Coped Hall, Swindon Road, Flaxlands, Greenhill (Lydiard Millicent), Hook, Marsh Farm, Spittleborough, Hay Lane, Basset Down, Lydiard Tregoze, Bath Road, Crossways and Whitehill, Hunts Mill, Vastern, Greenhill, Little Park and Breach Lane, Black Dog, Tockenham, Tockenham Wick, Tockenham Cross Roads, West Tockenham, Greenway, Bushton, Preston, Ballards Ash, Callow Hill and Brinkworth. Some houses and farms in Mannington, Toothill, Broad Town, Thornhill, Some houses and farms in Mannington, Toothill, Broad Town, and Thornhill are included too.
