Newnham-on-Severn is one of the most fascinating towns in the whole of Gloucestershire, with a history stretching back several hundred years which encompasses Kings and politicians, maritime trade, market fairs and days out on the 'Sands'. All of this has disappeared, leaving behind a wide main street and an eclectic and diverse range of buildings tumbling down the hill to the River Severn, which has always shaped Newnham's destiny. The bold array of styles and colours they present somehow manage to keep the town from being overwhelmed by the heavy traffic which daily beats through it on the A48 trunk road. Within these pages, you can travel back in time, in the company of an author who knows Newnham well, to a time when the High Street was still the preserve of men and beasts.
