View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Produced to celebrate the Millennium, this book contains a comprehensive and diverse account of the history of the village of Doddinghurst, near Brentwood in Essex, from very earliest times to the present day. The serious historical content is complemented by personal accounts of developments within the community since before World War II. This very ancient village with its foundation in Saxon times remained the same essentially until after World War I and before World War II when plots of land became available for the construction of weekend holiday homes. This development led to the rapid modernization of Doddinghurst, albeit on a piecemeal scale. The village is centred around its ancient church of All Saints, whose foundations can be traced back to the Saxon period. This book provides an informative historical document profusely illustrated with photographs and drawings, together with additional contributions from previous publications. One section deals with the listed buildings of the parish and the stories associated with them as well as an analysis of the architecture itself. Methods of timber frame house construction are also discussed in detail and illustrated.

The publication is reproduced in colour with some black and white. Printed on fine art paper it is section sewn with a laminated drawn on cover.
