From the Inside Flap:

For a parish whose population did not exceed 600 until the turn of the 21st century, Uffington in Lincolnshire has an illustrious history. Dating from Anglo-Saxon times, the parish encompasses Uffington village and the hamlets of Casewick and Newstead. The Earls of Lindsey were lords of the manor of Uffington, while the seat of the Kesteven Barony was a mere mile and a half away at Casewick. From the early 13th century to the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1536, there was a small but important Augustinian priory at Newstead. With a local economy based predominantly on agriculture, Uffington's thriving community is a mix of farming families and others attracted by its rural setting and excellent schools.This book covers the A to Z of Uffington's history, from its allotments to the Zeppelin bomb that fell at Newstead in the Great War. Whether it is its poorhouse or public houses, its waterworks or waterways, nothing within the parish boundaries escapes scrutiny.
