A NEW edition of a popular Blockley book has been published containing more than 200 photographs of the village in former times.

Old Blockley in Pictures has been compiled and published by Blockley Heritage Society and contain 92 pages of old photographs along with a narrative describing the people and places shown.

It has been a labour of love for editor Gill Linley as many of the photographs included in a previous edition were not readily available.

She had to search among various archives and approach villagers to obtain copies of their original photographs.

Readers will also find some newly discovered pictures included in the book as well.

Copies are now available via blockley-heritage-soc.co.uk or from Blockley Village Shop and cost £12.
