In Cheltenham Through Time, authors Roger Beacham and Lynne Cleaver show some of the different sides of this Spa town, where along with the Regency splendour is a much poorer side often hidden in other volumes. The historical photographs are mainly taken from a newspaper publication, the Cheltenham Chronicle and Gloucestershire Graphic, published weekly between 1901 and April 1942 when the wartime shortage of paper forced it to cease. The stories behind the images bring to life some of the everyday places and scenes we take for granted as we go about the town. Through the pages of this book the reader is invited to observe Cheltenham as it is today and using old photographs marvel at the many changes that have transformed the area through time, making it essential reading for anyone who is familiar with this jewel of the Cotswolds.
Tetbury district through time
The development of the Tetbury that we are so familiar with today was closely associated with the wool trade, which enabled many of the buildings to be rebuilt in the most modern styles, to reflect the fortunes of the tradesmen. The outlying areas, on the other hand, were predominantly agricultural, and the work of the labourers was dependent on the seasons just as the Tetbury men were dependent on the woollen trade.In addition to Tetbury, the parishes of Ashley, Long Newnton, Beverston, Kingscote, Newington Bagpath, Ozleworth, Didmarton, Oldbury on the Hill, Lasborough, Westonbirt, Boxwell, Shipton Moyne, Cherington and Avening are all looked at in turn. Take a tour of Tetbury and District through this collection of photographs, old and new, and discover some beautiful and remote areas in this quintessential Cotswold location.
