New Book: Growing Up in Bluebird's Garden Village

Garden Village

The Society is delighted to publish a new book, Growing Up in Blue Bird's Garden Village, by Margaret Harding and Valerie Mills.

Margaret was born and raised in Hunnington and Valerie moved there as a young child. They share their memories of growing up in this most unusual community, as well as their own research into how the model village was conceived in 1927 by Bluebird's founder, Sir Harry Vincent, and its development since. The book contains many photographs of local places and people, many not seen before.

Copies of the book, priced £15, may be purchased by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
