In this work Fred Archer traces the history of the Tibblestone Hundred, from its beginnings, through the time when the Hundred Courts held sway in neighbours' disputes, up to his own era farming in the area, when the Hundred's successor in the Parish Council was all powerful. He describes how the villages in the Hundred competed against each other, and how he felt in a foreign land when, as a boy, he visited Sedgebarrow on Saturday mornings, his cart horses tied nose to tail in tandem. He recounts the legend of the Tibblestone itself, a story handed from man to boy since time immemorial, the holes in its sides being the impressions of a giant's fingers, and tells us of the superstitions surrounding this and other landmarks, which were such an important part of life for country folk in the early years of this century.
