This is the first and only history of Kingsdown ever written and is the outcome of more than ten years of painstaking research into the Village's past, carried out in libraries, archives and private sources, in many parts of Britain. It has been written especially for the people of West Kingsdown. It covers the history from prehistoric times to the present of the three ancient parishes of Kingsdown, Maplescombe and Woodlands which now comprise the civil parish of West Kingsdown. The book is profusely illustrated with photographs, line drawings, maps, and family pedigrees of the principal manorial and landowning families. The large, folding redrawn Tithe Map of Kingsdown attached to the back cover can be opened and referred to whilst reading the book. Read the background to the Village in which you live and look at it again with new eyes and realise that it is worth protecting so that you and it will have a future as well as a past.
