Extracts from book reviews and letters received following the launch of the book:

The authors have provided us with a well-researched, high-quality book which is a fitting testimony to the high quality work produced by an organisation which, more than any other, helped to put Bromsgrove on the map. Dr Simon Penn, Avoncroft Museum of Buildings

Well crafted masterpiece... beautifully illustrated and splendidly researched... a visual delight which would make a fine Christmas present. Ralph Richardson, Redditch Advertiser

I have now had a chance to read the book from cover to cover and I would like to offer my congratulations to all involved in its preparation and production. I think it is really excellent. John Powell, Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust

What a splendid book you have all produced, magnificently presented and full of interest with excellent illustrations. It is a treasure!  Mary Banks, daughter of George Whewell who was the last chairman of the Bromsgrove Guild
