TODAY Barnwood is a pleasant Gloucester suburb; the beautiful St Lawrence church dates from the Norman period whilst Barnwood Court has survived since medieval times. But turn back the clock only a few years and life here was vastly different. For almost a century Barnwood was home to one of the country's pioneering mental hospitals. These aspects - and many others - about the village's past have been delightfully brought together in a well illustrated book, "Tales of Old Barnwood". Its 100 pages and 60 pictures are crammed with a wealth of interesting information and fascinating anecdotes, encompassing not only the church and hospital but also schools, coronation parties, shops and post office as well as stories of wartime Barnwood, fetes and fairs, body snatchers and much else.
