The final volume in the trilogy centred around Beverley Nichol's tudor cottage Allways, with illustrations and dust jacket design by Rex Whistler. Following on from Down the Garden Path and A Thatched Roof, A Village in a Valley takes the reader outside of the garden wall and around the local village of Glatton, a small rural parish in Cambridgeshire. Nichols brings his characteristic charm and humour to this record of pre-War village life.
