Over one thousand years of history recounted
through the life and times of three Sussex villages. The book contains a
unique collection of more than 200 miniature essays, originally published in
the parish monthly magazine The Villager (1983-2003).
Peter Thorogood's restoration of the 600-year
old St. Mary's House, Bramber, led him explore more widely the history of
his adopted village of Bramber. Keith Nethercoate-Bryant's articles were the
perfect beginning of a fascinating historical journey. Peter has once more
brought to life the writings of a dedicated, highly respected local
Peter introduces Keith in his introductory
biographical sketch 'Keith Nethercoate-Bryant as I Know Him'.
With over 130 black-and-white illustrations,
mainly from local history archives, and a comprehensive index, Portrait
of Village Life gives a
vivid picture of a vibrant community and the people who made it.
