The book has approximately 150 pages full of delightful and interesting photographs of Riseley past.

It includes a colour section depicting colour photographs of the Golden Jubilee Celebrations in 2002. There is also a colour section of paintings of the village from the 1940s and 1950s, by the late Mr Charles (Charlie) Brooks, which are lovely..
