The Harcombe Year

by Di Alexander | Illustrations by Lorna Gray

“A new beginning and, whatever the weather, a time of hope…”

So begins Di Alexander’s latest cheerful foray into the quirks and characters of Harcombe that ensure that life here can certainly never be described as unvaried.

Meet neighbours, visitors, guests and the animals, wild and tame, who prove that life in the Cotswolds is as full and wholesome as it has ever been.

Di Alexander has had a long career as a journalist, writing for Cotswold Life, Gloucestershire Life, Wiltshire Life and the Wilts and Gloucestershire Standard. Lately she has examined the much overlooked story of Pamela Mitford and brought it to the fore in ‘The Other Mitford’ (History Press 2012).

‘Harcombe’ became a household staple during its years as a regular feature in the Wilts and Gloucestershire Standard. This book marks its long awaited return. Illustrated throughout by Lorna Gray.
