cover previewIn late September the back room of the Hyde Tavern pub in Winchester was filled with budding local writers who were celebrating the launch of their second book. Following on from the success of Inspired by Hyde, which was published in 2010, Hyde Days and Holidays has just come into print.

For this second book, we’ve broadened our horizons and the book contains a selection of poems and prose about both Hyde and travels further afield. Whether it is Winchester’s Water Meadows or Marrakech’s markets, the stories told will whisk you into another world, a world of facts and fiction and a feeling of escapism.

Supplementing these are two eye-witness accounts of the recent opening of the Unmarked Grave in the local church and its possible connection with King Alfred.

Hyde Days & Holidays is available now – you can order it online for £6.50 including postage and packaging.
