The Village Chronicle by B.L.Deed

by B.L.Deed

Basil Deed was the first secretary of the Warborough and Shillingford Society when it was formed in January 1970 until his death in March 1991. He produced, with unfailing regularity three times a year, these excellent Bulletins.

They were printed on his old Roneo machine, and distributed not only in the village but to old residents living elsewhere
