Romsey Through Time PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Romsey Through Time free pdf The small market town of Romsey, nestled on the River Test in Hampshire, has history at its core: whether it's the 10th century Norman abbey at the heart of the town- Embley Park, once the home of Florence Nightingale, on the outskirts- Broadlands, the country estate where Lord Palmerston, the 19th century British Prime Minister, was born (and lived for many years) and later became the home of Lord Mountbatten of Burma- or the Romsey Remount Camp, where tens of thousands of horses and mules were prepared for service in the First World War. The history comes right up to date when you discover what Inspector Wexford, Worzel Gummidge and Oscar Wilde have in common...they've all been the subject of films or television shows which have been shot in the area. Join author and long-time Romsey resident Ian Dickerson on a lavishly illustrated tour of Romsey and its history.

About Ian Dickerson

Despite a career in broadcasting author Ian Dickerson is perhaps best known for his association with the adventures of Simon Templar, The Saint. He's written a biography of his friend, The Saint's creator, Leslie Charteris and written several books on aspects of The Saint's long career. He co-produced a US TV pilot in 2013 and will be repeating that job for ITV in 2016. He's also written, produced and directed a number of documentaries on the making of various classic TV shows (yes, including The Saint and Return of the Saint). For the sake of his sanity he occasionally escapes the hagiography and has published articles on subjects as diverse as satellite links, mashed potatoes and Lord Grade. Ian lives in Romsey, Hampshire with his wife and two children. And an awful lot of books by Leslie Charteris.
