From Monks to Mud Men is an attempt to chronicle 800 years of Garston history from the viewpoint of the people who lived it. It is not a history textbook as I have taken a little poetic licence with the characters in an attempt to tell a story. I decided the best way to bring the Garston story to life was to use ten characters, based on people who lived, worked or visited Garston and became part of the history, written and oral, of the Garston we know today. In developing the characters and their stories I have used historical records, talked with Garstonians, young and old, listened to oral histories of families and finally, used my imagination and my own experience of living and working in Garston for over 50 years.
