METFIELD Tales from a Suffolk Village 1928–2017
as told by Christine Brennan
This is a compelling collection of memories spanning nearly 90 years. Christine recounts her tales and anecdotes of growing up in Metfield, including material about the war years and the USAAF ‘invasion’ of the village, with humour and warmth. The photos, old and new, are a joy. A book to treasure.
A gift to the village where she has spent her whole life, through this book Christine has achieved her dream that these memories would be preserved and that future generations would have an understanding of how hard and yet fulfilling life was in those days.
A must-read for all Metfield residents, past, present and future. It is also a valuable resource for anyone interested in 20th-century rural society and the fundamental social and cultural change which has reshaped the lives of everyone living in Suffolk.
