The Story of Croscombe

I have been trying to find a copy of 'The Story of Croscombe' by Keith Armstrong for some time now, but it has been out of print. But a second edition is now available. I stumbled across it on a recent trip back to the UK when I popped into the Shepton Mallet Tourist Information and Heritage Centre. The book is 256 pages in softback and covers the history of the village from pre-history to the 20th century. It is self-published by Keith Armstrong and available at The George Inn, Croscombe.

I was pleased to find a picture of my grandfather in there, boarding a bus for a day out at Weston with a group of quarry workers. There is a another photo of this group in a book of old photographs of Shepton Mallet, but in a different pose. I guess it must have been quite an event back then in 1919.
