This is another book in the Halsgrove Parish History series, reminding us of the people and events that have made our communities what they are today - celebrating the past and providing a stepping stone to the future. The photographs in this unique volume, many of them previously unpublished, are a vital record of the history and inhabitants of this ancient settlement brought together from across the community. The small, scattered village of Nynehead lies on the River Tone about seven miles upstream of the Somerset county town of Taunton. Everyday life has changed fundamentally over the past 200 years but there is much that remains special about Nynehead: the mixed blessing of the River Tone; Nynehead Court and its gardens; the fine Parish Church; a lost parkland; distinctive rural buildings; the Grand Western Canal; and the enigma of the Nynehead 'Hollow' - combined with the influence of the Sandford family over three centuries. All these, and many more, are detailed in this 160 page book, copiously illustrated throughout with over 200 historic photographs of the places and people who have made up the thriving community of Nynehead and its surrounding parish.
