‘The Hamlet of Grove Heath’
by Bette and John Slatford
(plus £1.50 shipping)
Within the parish of Ripley, the Grove Heath area is an unusually close grouping of mainly farm workers’ cottages of 17th and 19th Century origins. This booklet sets out to record from available records much of the history of these houses and the families that lived in them. The result is a fascinating booklet, full of information of value to the family and local historian and gives a unique glimpse into a past now vanished.
