History of Havenstreet


The most comprehensive history of the Parish of Havenstreet and Ashey available  is the book “God’s Own Acre,” by Keith Newbery and Angela Snow. It was published in May 2014, just a few months before Keith’s death.  As well as the general history of the Parish, particular topics covered include local characters, the school, sport, wartime, the White Hart Inn, local farming, the steam railway, and Ashey and the races.  

The main sponsor of the book was F.H.Winter and Sons Ltd., but other sponsors were Havenstreet and Ashey Parish Council, Northbrooke House Nursing Home, Vectis Tree Specialists, the White Hart Inn, and Coppid Hall Farm. Any profits were donated to St. Peter’s Church, Havenstreet.
