  • The only book so far published on the history of the village of Wimbish, (near Saffron Walden in Essex) originally published in 1954 and out-or-print for over 50 years
  • This new edition is exactly as Isabel Wiseman wrote it (but reset, not a photocopy) and with a short biographical introduction and a new cover
  • It traces the history of the village from pre-Norman times to the mid-20th century.
  • The author was a member of one of the longest-established Wimbish families. One of the fascinating chapters recounts the protection of a Jesuit priest in a "priest's hole" in a local manor house: something which lead a Wiseman ancestor to be condemned to death (but later pardoned)
