This volume continues the story of Dunster Church and Priory, from the Restoration of Charles II in 1660 until the twentieth century. These were often politically turbulent years, affecting even the small town of Dunster. Drawing on contemporary sources, Joan Jordan gives us a vivid picture of the continuing daily life of the villagers as their world gradually changed to one more like our own. The author describes fully the major restoration of the church in 1874-76 by G. E. Street. She also recounts the prominent part the Luttrell family of Dunster Castle continued to play in Dunster life, and shows their impact on church, castle and village.

Joan Jordan studied at the Study Centre for the Fine and Decorative Arts at the V&A where she majored on the history of European architecture and the decorative arts.
