Wylye Valley Memories

Danny Howell's latest book, Wylye Valley Memories, just published, is already a best-seller, thanks to the large number of advanced orders it has received.
It features the transcriptions of interviews made with four Wylye Valley residents, namely Les Saunders, Edwin Stone, Bill Robbins and Rhona Collier, who recall life at Codford, Fisherton Delamere, Great Wishford, Hanging Langford, Heytesbury, South Newton, Stockton, Upton Lovell and Wylye.
Cricket and tennis, travelling by train to school in Salisbury, the great storm of January 1929, the demolition of the factory chimney at Upton Lovell, Siegfried Sassoon and his beautiful wife, Couchman's bus service, the shepherd's year on the farm, and Smith's garage at Wylye all feature among a host of recollections.
