Ben Pentreath, The Financial Times

ASHCOMBE, The Story of a Fifteen-Year Lease


Cecil Beaton

Foreword by Hugo Vickers

'Although I dare not go down the hill to visit Ashcombe for fear of being shot at . . ., I find myself drawn to the place like a magnet. As I stand up outside the gate looking down into the tree-covered valley towards the hidden house, I wonder, if the miracle should happen, and I was given the chance to return, whether or not it would be a wise thing to try and recapture the happiness I had known in my youth . . .’

GREAT FACES OF DORSET


Here is the authentic face of Dorset as seen in Millie Pilkington’s striking photographs of nearly 90 men and women who help give the county its character. Some are household names, others shun the spotlight. Some go quietly about their business helping others, safeguarding Dorset’s countryside, providing employment; others enjoy truly contemporary even eccentric lives. Yet all are remarkable, and are brought together within GREAT FACES OF DORSET by Elizabeth Pope's ability to tease out their individual stories and bring a fresh insight into what it is to live and work in Dorset today.

THE GREAT FACES OF DORSET is presently available by subscription only.
The List of Subscribers closes on July 31 2014 and subscribed copies, signed by Millie Pilkington and Elizabeth Pope, will be sent out with receipted invoices prior to publication in October 2014.
