This book is a portrait of a Herefordshire Parish in the first year of the twenty-first century, It is a sequel toKimbolton with Hamnish, 1986, and is a pictorial record of the people, their houses and important buildings in the parish.

Unlike the first book this volume focuses on various aspects of the life of people within the parish, the church, school, agriculture, businesses, gardening, organisations, societies and leisure time.

This comprehensive survey of the parish in sixteen areas is fully illustrated with maps, plans and original artwork. It will prove a useful resource to historians of the future.

The wrapround cover by artist Arthur Davis is a montage in watercolour of houses and buildings, including the churches, school and village halls, that spread across the parish of Kimbolton and Hamnish, They are linked by the Cogwell Brook and its tributaries. Incorporated within the cover design is a butterfly, a symbol of ephemeral delight. The variety is a Comma Hutchinson which is well associated with the parish. This butterfly was named after Sarah Hutchinson of Grantsfield, Kimbolton for her scientific contribution to entomology.
