A village in a Valley

£14.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This reprint of the third book in Nichols's Allways trilogy contains a new foreword by Bryan Connon, Beverley Nichols's biographer. Set in the English countryside, the hilarious memoir is as much about the author's love for plants as it is about the village in which he lived. The depictions of flowers and ornamentals-"A single one of those gloxinias would be an event in Allways. . . I should give a party for it"-are both inspiring and unforgettable. This is the voice of one whose chief endowment is an appreciation for plants and the landscape, including a keen understanding of the importance gardens play in an increasingly modern world.

With a foreword by Bryan Connon.

Oxfam Shop Magdalen Street

Norwich Oxfam is exceptionally large for an Oxfam Shop and we sell a large array of homeware as well as all the usual goods that you would associate with Oxfam shops. We are situated on Magdalen Street, a bustling thoroughfare near to the Cathedral at the heart of a vibrant community and close to the centre of the East Anglian City of Norwich. It is easy to get to, as many of the bus routes (including Park & Ride) go past the shop. There are at least three large car parks and a local shopping centre within walking distance.
