Welcome to Goodness Gracious

“Betchworth Within Living Memory” by Meg Ryan & Keith Harding was published by Goodness Gracious in December 2001. The original publication was conceived in the mid 1980s by Meg Ryan and took the form of 3 small booklets that were produced ‘on a shoe-string’. Keith Harding edited, updated and illustrated this new version as part of Betchworth village’s millennium celebrations. It is a beautifully produced item, comprising 190 pages with 130 photographs printed in duotone on 160gsm paper. The hardback book is available in a limited-edition of only 850 and costs £20 including U.K. post & packing. Overseas postage at cost.

The Betchworth Collection comprises more than 750 photographs showing people, places and events within the village and have been collected and copied by Keith Harding over the past 40 years.
