A Glance Back Series

The first volume in this series, A glance back at ... Lydney, was written and published by Neil under the Black Dwarf banner in 1998. It presents a concise but well illustrated history of the town, told mainly through extended captions to the pictures. These were compiled with the benefit of information provided by many older residents, which add much local colour and otherwise forgotten detail to the many photographs, dating from c1865 to c1950. Published in A5 format, on glossy art paper but with an easy-on-the-pocket cover price, it was an instant bestseller and has since been reprinted. In the meantime, the range was expanded to include many other Forest towns and villages, and also Lydney Docks.

Now up to number 8, further additions to the series are planned, including, when time permits, a volume from Ian covering Cinderford. The slightly higher price of two of the volumes reflects an increased number of pages in these.
