‘Tiz oll accordin’
‘Tiz oll accordin’ is a fabulous book written and illustrated by former Stocklinch resident and historian, the late Connie M. Crosland. Published in 1996, over73 illustrated pages, it gives an authoritative historical narrative of the parish, providing glimpses of everyday life over the previous five hundred years. Numerous images of local people, buildings – including detailed sketches – are featured throughout. It is a terrific resource for anyone with an interest in our quiet but beautiful parish in the heart of Somerset. A copy can be purchased from the SHG for £5.00 (contact Jo Beaumont – details herein).
