Description

This fascinating book illustrates the development of the parishes of Barnwood, Hucclecote and Brockworth throughout the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Originally communities that sprang up along Ermin Street, the Roman road connecting Cirencester and Gloucester, each village was greatly boosted by the arrival of the aircraft industry and in particular the Gloster Aircraft Company. In April 1941, the first jet-propelled flight left the ground between Hucclecote and Brockworth, thus cementing the region's place in history. Also described in detail are the people, businesses and local transport of this beautiful area. With over 200 archive images and informative captions, this book records the evolution of these three settlements from small villages to suburban communities buoyed by the development of heavy industry in the area. This unique collection will stir recollections of days past, and provide a vital record for generations to come.
