In 1953 Alfred Keys published a book called ‘A History of Eastington’.
There were not very many printed, and even fewer still around.
Ann Pitcher very kindly lent me her signed copy, and it is a fascinating look into our past – as well as into the mindset of the 1950s!
With the blessing of Alf Keys, the nephew of the author – who said that he was sure his late uncle would have approved – I have been able to reproduce it here for anyone that would like to see. I have made three versions:
1) The PDF version will open directly in Adobe Acrobat reader or similar and you can download/save it as you wish.
A History of Eastingtonforpdf.pdf
The following two versions are in e-book format, and you will be prompted to save the file. You should then be able to open it in your e-reader program on your PC or tablet app. (On your tablet, you may need to find the download and choose a ‘share’ option to the app)
2) This ‘epub’ format works with ibook on I-pad and the native book app on Android.
It will download automatically from this link:-

3) This .mobi version download should work with your Kindle:
