Cossington: History, Stories, People, Places and Pictures
'A Note From The Author,' taken from the book:
"Since the Cossington Womens' Institute produced an excellent booklet 'A Short History of Cossington' in 1935, the village has seen many changes. It is not claimed that this publication is a classic of English literature, rather a sincere attempt to record, for present and future generations, some history, stories, people, places and pictures. If with all its imperfections it stimulates the same love and affection for the village, in others, as myself, then it will not have been in vain. We are but temporary custodians of our inheritance, may we endeavour to leave it better than when we arrived. I am grateful to George Watts, a lifelong friend who at this time has lived in the village longer than any other living person. George has jogged my memory on many of the events since the first world war. My sincere thanks are due to Doreen Haberle who typed the manuscript, carefully dotting the 'Is' and crossing the 'Ts'. As we move into the 21st century and beyond it is my prayer that Cossington remains a happy friendly village, in a peaceful world."
