Describes life in a small Warwickshire village not far from Stratford-upon-Avon. Whilst there is a brief description of the village's early history, covering the Luxborough family and the building of "Barrells" (the local stately home), the book focuses mainly on the history of Ullenhall during the last hundred years using oral reminiscences to re-create the life and atmosphere in the early years of the century. There are chapters on the school, the church, the vicarage, the public house, old buildings of the village and the village in two world wars, together with an account of the sale and subsequent splitting up of the "Barrells" estate and the disastrous fire at "Barrells" in 1933. The book is complete with many documents, wills and estate sale particulars reproduced in full together with photographs of the village at work and play throughout the 20th century, whoch emphasize the immense social changes during the period described.
