Broadhempston has fascinating history, visit the dedicated website here for more information and images from the past.
Village Lives is a marvellous book, containing a host of interesting articles which were published in the Parish News between 1975 and 2009. It gives a vivid picture of life in the villages of Woodland, Broadhempston, Staverton, Landscove and Littlehempston, their inhabitants, the society and the social changes that have occurred in relatively few years. The Parish News editors were keen to preserve and present the social history just sitting there modestly within all these magazines. Suitable local photos have been included in the presentation. The book can be purchased here (all proceeds donated to the Parish news organisation) or click here for a downloadable pdf of the book.
