Village Parliaments by Valerie Porter

Book Description

This book celebrates the centenary of Parish Councils in West Sussex, and traces their history from Vestry meetings, which were often very active, particularly on behalf of the poor and disadvantaged. The new democratic parish councils were intended to loosen the grip of the squire and the parson on village life.
