Pluckley was my playground


Frederick Sanders

In 1955 Frederick Sanders began to write, in his words, ‘the book of my heart’ – a memoir of his childhood in Pluckley, Kent, during the years 1919-26.

He described his adventures, escapades and explorations in and around a village finding itself again after the Great War, filled with countryside lore and ghost stories which have since grown into the modern-day legends of Pluckley.

A century after the events it describes, Canterley Publishing is proud to present Sanders’ memoir to a new and wider audience, who will delight in its portrayal of a lost time as seen through a boy’s eyes.
