Easterton by Sheila Judge – 1986


1986! Gosh, what an unfortunate time to produce a book about Easterton. A couple of years later and it could have been wonderfully word processed and readily alterable when updates became vital. But even so, Sheila did a grand job in researching and recording the history of Easterton. We are really pleased to have a copy of her book at Market Lavington Museum.

Easterton Village by Sheila M Judge – this copy is at Market Lavington Museum,

Inside  we have an A4 sized book of 88 pages which appears to have been typed on a good, old fashioned, manual typewriter. Here’s a short extract – just one paragraph from one page to give a flavour of the contents of the book.

A paragraph from Sheila Judge’s book on Easterton.

The book is essentially non-pictorial. There are three photos on a frontispiece page and a rather charming pictorial plan of the village.

We understand that an Easterton resident is working on an update at the moment. We look forward to seeing that, in the fullness of time.
