This is another book in the "Halsgrove Parish History" series, reminding us of the people and events that have made our communities what they are today - celebrating the past and providing a stepping stone to the future. The photographs in this unique volume, many of them previously unpublished, are a vital record of the history and inhabitants of this ancient settlement brought together from across the community. This book reveals how the parish has evolved over the years. The smallholdings of 1761 are now just three. Quarries, schools, the gasworks, slipway and even the bridge between the once infamous St. Audries Walls have come and gone. About 1,000 troops were stationed at the Army Camp during the Second World War. Today, holiday businesses as well as St Audries Park, The Windmill, Rydon Kennels, St. Audries Garage, and the filling station and shop, welcome thousands of visitors annually to enjoy the parish and its surrounds. All this, and much more, is detailed in this 192 page book, copiously illustrated throughout with over 250 historic photographs of the places and people who have made up the thriving community of St Audries and West Quantoxhead and its surrounding parish.
