Grannie's Tales

Doris Maud Griffin (mother of Paul Griffin - PPE, 1956)

Letters from a grandmother to a granddaughter, about the daily lives of her own two young children living in a south Shropshire country vicarage over 70 years ago. Touchingly written, beautifully illustrated and telling of a world long ago and far away.  Facsimile copies of some of the letters show how selectively and meticulously the letters were composed and written, contemporary photographs of the family and their dog and cat at home add authenticity and there is delightful map of the parish which shows the countryside within walking distance of the vicarage which is now an Episcopal residence.  To buy the book click here.
