Wow – this website is amazing –
I found it when looking for the full words of ‘Our Summons’ by Ernest Jones which took me to here –
http://gerald-massey.org.uk/jones/c_poems_2.htm – he wrote most of his poetry in his own blood whilst in prison. What to say. Lost for words.
A History Of Community Asset Ownership
By Steve Wyler
When my friend Sophie first told me about this book she said ‘Someone has written a book of the show!’
This is a brilliant overview of the last thousand years and what it lacks in a catchy title, it makes up for in compelling prose.
The book can be downloaded free from here as a pdf –
