A Study In Time

This is a new book about the history of Pleasley and surrounding areas. 

Priced at £7:50, there are 139 pages about how the village developed from Roman times through to the families such as The Nightingales and The Verneys. How the opening of Pleasley Colliery bought the railways to the village. There is something in it for everyone young or old.

Ralph Stone has financed and published the book himself and is available direct from him at
