100 years of memories as recalled by the people of Midhurst
Edited by Sanchia Elsdon – copyright 2010 – The Midhurst Society
This book is the outcome of an oral history project initiated by the Midhurst Society and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. It brings together the memories of over 100 people, some of whom have lived in the area for all or most of their lives. The oldest contributor was born in 1913, and there are many memories of the 1930s and the war years.
“The nostalgic memories captured in this book are of golden days when Midhurst was a little country town and life had hardly changed for generations. Life was hard, but was it happier?”
