Abbots Langley Then
A History of the Village and four miles around


Clive W. Clark
The Author, 1997
Hardback, 24*17 cm, 592 pages, 48 plates

This book has been carefully researched and contains good references and footnotes, and many references to individuals who lived in the village. It is unusual in that it tell the story of the village as a series of entertaining scenes, with reconstructed conversations, and may not be to everyone's taste. The index is far from comprehensive as far as personal names go.
