Description

Alf and Ann Jenkins , Sb, 300

Born in 1937 high in Shropshire’s Clee Hills, with their awe-inspiring views over a patchwork of fields and mountains, Alf Jenkins remembers a way of life long forgotten by most.

In this fascinating autobiography, interwoven with records of the rich social and industrial history of the area, he vividly tells the story of a simpler time, mired by hardship but bolstered by a hardy community spirit.

We follow him from a young boy watching searchlights criss-cross over dark wartime skies – picking out enemy aircraft – and discovering planes’ wreckage on the cliff face, to attending a local grammar school, national service and becoming a beloved local teacher alongside his wife, Ann.

In 2008 Alf was awarded an MBE for his work
