An illustrated history of Leckhampton, today a suburb of Cheltenham but for most of its existence a separate village situated at the foot of the Cotswold escarpment and the "Devil's Chimney". It is distinguished by its manor house and its slender-steepled church, both dating from the 14th century. The quarries and the horse-drawn tramway that once served them are of interest to industrial archaeologists, while brickyards, potteries, and caravan factories have at various times provided alternative employment in a largely agricultural area. Market gardening is still carried out on the rich alluvial soil, recalling the role of the original Anglo-Saxon farmstead, which produced vegetables for the royal manor at Cheltenham.
