Voices: Women of a White Peak Village Compiled and edited by Gillian Radcliffe, tells of the changing lives of women in the Peak District village of Parwich over the last one hundred years. Told in people's own words, it grew out of a number of extensive interviews Gill undertook, when preparing a display on domestic life for an exhibition held in 2002.  This mosaic of extracts creates a vivid picture of a community in relation to universal themes, such as the changing seasons, childhood, courtship, wartime, work and old age.  The photographs bring the text alive, and the voices, including those of the children of the village, join together in celebrating a community that thrives despite the threat of rising houses prices and the changing rural economy.  Its production was supported by an Awards for All grant.  Price £7.50p + £4.50p for P&P
