From the Back Cover:

An entertaining new collection of Fred Secombe's stories of his life as a clergyman in 1950s Wales The third trilogy of this series, More Chronicles of a Vicar describes Fred's move to the new parish of Abergelly and the challenges that await him there.

Pastures New opens with Fred's arrival in Abergelly, where he immediately encounters stiff opposition from his new parishioners when he puts forward plans to renovate the church and build a new church on a local housing estate. He tackles the obstacles with his usual good humour, and with the help of some unexpected allies.

In The Changing Scenes of Life the new church is ready to open, but, as usual, this does not pass off without incident.

Mr. Rural Dean opens with Fred three years into his life in Abergelly, and heavily involved with the local Gilbert and Sullivan Society's production of The Pirates of Penzance. Then the Rural Dean is fatally injured--could this change everything for Fred?
