Clent Celebrated

Researched & compiled by Carole Hodgson

Following the successful publication of Clent Remembered, Clent Celebrated is another delight, making use of further photographic material from the society’s extensive archive (with additional material, kindly loaned by members and friends for the creation of this book) A galleryof pictures, in colour, featuring the village inns, is particularly attractive.

Readers can enjoy dipping into articles from old parish magazines, reports from popular travel guides to the area and comments from well known visitors and residents of Clent.

Poetry features, as the area has inspired many poets over the years; William Shenstone and The Blind Bard of Clent, to mention just two.

Clent Events, from Oak Apple Day in 1664, to the opening of the new bypass in 1964; the memorable Golden Girls’ Christmas Parties, at the parish hall and ending with village celebrations which marked the approaching Millennium.
Derek Faraday writes of the Clent Village Day- A day when the sun stayed away and competitors in the five-a-side football team, and a tug of war, became so covered in mud that “..we had a supplementary game of “Guess the competitor!”…. It was, he says, “A day when we laughed a lot!”
