Viewed through the eyes of the villagers of Swanbrooke Down in East
Anglia, this is a study of village life and the way it has changed
through the 20th century. The inhabitants were interviewed
throughout the seasons of one year. The eldest of them, born before
World War I, remembers the days of feudal England, of no indoor
sanitation or running hot water and no mains electricity or radio.
The next generation served in World War II and observed major
social and economic changes first hand. Their children, brought up
with television and technology, have moved in, bringing with them
money and commuter culture. The interviews reveal a frankness about
the inevitability of change, its necessity and its advantages and
disadvantages. Through them the book documents a century of change
which has parallels all over England.
