Kinder People

Kinder People

Hayfield Civic Trust is delighted to announce the re-issue of Pam Gee's fascinating book 'Kinder People' which she first published in 1985.

Pam has lived in Hill Houses since 1959 and has always had a keen interest in the history of this area. With the help of neighbours, she has collected tales about families and farms in the Kinder Valley which reflect a way of life which has now vanished. Many of the details reflect the character and fortitude of these farming families, recounted in a most entertaining way.

The book can be obtained from Hayfield News or from Sheila Booth Tel. 01663 742872.
