Temple Balsall 1150 - 1870

Temple Balsall 1150 - 1870
a short history

by Eileen Gooder

From the gift of the lands at Temple Balsall to the Knights Templar by Roger de Mowbray, through two episodes of religious repression, dereliction and restoration, this profusely illustrated concise history gives the longer view of life in what might appear to be a quiet corner of rural England. Historian Eileen Gooder provides the story up to the date where St. Mary's became a Parish Church in the 1860's. Accompanied by many photographs, both of the the present-day community and from archive material, 16 pages A5, illustrated thoughout. More books by Eileen Gooder
