Mabel Woods

Newnham-on Severn, a Retrospect

by Mabel K Woods

Published in 1912, this was Newnham’s first history book and is now quite hard to find in its original format.  However in 1962 the then Vicar of Newnham, Revd R J Mansfield,
revised and updated it and produced a second edition 50 years after its original
publication date.

This edition has, of course, also been out of print for many years but copies do still appear
on the second hand market and a handful have been acquired over the years by our
members and can now be offered for sale @ £10.00 each (plus postage and packing)
