Thursday 23rd November 2000 saw a packed church hall for the launch of the already
successful launch of local author and photographer Avril Stones book, 'High Bickington a Devon Ridgeway Village'.
Inspired by her love of photography and the work of well know local photographers such as the late James Ravilious, Avril originally set out to create a book of her own photographs of village life, this later developed into what is a fine record of the village history drawing on the memories of the many people who have lived in the village for all or most of their lives and have a deep love for the place. people such as Sid Squires, Margaret Bolt and many others.
The book features many photographs by Avril as well as contributions from Richard Lethbridge, local postman and amateur photographer. In addition are many fine old photographs lent by local people and the Beaford Archives, giving a detailed visual history of the village.
