Through the centuries Sampford Courtenay has been predominantly an agricultural community. In recent times modern buildings have replaced some of the old cob farmsteads, several cottages have become holiday homes and many parishioners now commute to work in nearby towns. Nevertheless, the old farmholdings and fields remain, their ancient names continue and many of the families who have worked the land and lived in the parish for several generations, still do so. Remarkably, Sampford Courtenay and Honeychurch have survived the innovations of the last century to remain relatively unspoilt. The village is best known for its participation in the Western Rebellion of 1549 and, in more recent years, for its successes in the Britain in Bloom competitions. The Book of Sampford Courtenay with Honeychurch chronicles every aspect of parish life from Doomsday to the present day, telling the story of the people of the parish, their work, their times of leisure, their adversities and their triumphs. A4, 192-page, hardback, 250 historic photographs, maps and other illustrations.
