1 Humphrey Phelps A Gloucestershire Notebook
Stroud Gloucestershire The History Press 2008 1845886291 / 9781845886295 1st Edition Paperback New Book 
Humphrey Phelps farmed in west Gloucestershire, near to the Forest of Dean, for most of his life, as did his father and his grandfather before him. He has seen farming change from the days when much of the work on a farm was done by manual labour and before it became overly mechanized and industrialized. In this collection of articles, which he wrote for various newspapers and magazines, such as "The Countryman" and "Gloucestershire & Avon Life", he looks at how farming has changed over the years, for better and for worse, and laments the passing of some of its more traditional aspects in the name of 'progress'. Written in an engaging style and with a genuine affection for his subject, this is a charming selection of musings and anecdotes, interwoven with serious analysis of the state of the countryside and farming that will appeal to all who love Gloucestershire and rural life.
