Shapwick & Winscombe: Contrasting Communities in the Somerset Landscape


Mick Aston
978 1 911592 12 9

In Shapwick & Winscombe, the late Mick Aston tells about work on two Somerset parishes: Shapwick, on which he was engaged for ten years; and Winscombe. Shapwick was historically a classic example of a closed settlement, dominated by one or two landlords; Winscombe of the open kind, enjoying relative freedom. But despite these contrasts, there were great similarities in the investigations: co-operation with colleagues of many disciplines, and wholehearted and valued involvement by the communities involved.
