A Century of Colt Hill
I am delighted that Philip was inspired to write this history of Colt Hill as a result of his Open University studies.
Baroness Boothroyd, PC OM
A Century of Colt Hill brings the fortunes of this small Odiham community to life during a fascinating period in its history. What makes Colt Hill special is that many of the people who came to live there in the early years of the twentieth century remained for the rest of the century; some even continue to live there in the twenty-first century!
By skilfully blending the stories of the residents with a painstaking search through the archives, Philip Humphrey has created an intriguing account of life on the hill. A Century of Colt Hill is not just the story of the people; many previously unpublished photographs chart the rise, the fall and the changes that have happened to some of Colt Hill's buildings.
A Century of Colt Hill is to be published by Ellingham Press in November 2006.
