A Ketley Mon Exposed
A Ketley Mon Exposed
by Terry Lowe
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Images from the past of people and places in or near Ketley, 8 Nov. 2012
This review is from: A Ketley Mon Exposed (Paperback)
Within this book, I found a perfect complement to the author's first book 'A Ketley Mon'. More than 100 images, many from private collections and rarely seen, provide a social history of this Shropshire village from old photographs. Once a cradle for the inventions of Quaker industrialist William Reynolds (1758-1803) and his associates from the Lunar Society, the importance of this Shropshire village in the East Shropshire Coalfield, and its contribution to the growth of the Industrial Revolution, is almost forgotten: today, thanks to the monumental effort of the Ironbridge George Museum Trust and its supporters, the World Heritage site at Coalbrookdale gets most of the kudos. The late Terry Lowe (1943-2012), a real-life Ketley 'mon', sought to redress this situation in his own way by creating his two books about Ketley before it ceases to exist: swallowed up by the urban conurbation of Telford and Wrekin.

Edition: Paperback

1.0 out of 5 stars This book is not what it should be, 11 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Buyer beware... If you want to learn about the agriculture of SHROPSHIRE you won't find it in this version. It's purported to be the 1803 book by Archdeacon Plymley but inside the covers of this imprint is a book about MONMOUTHSHIRE written by Charles Hassall.
