Detailed life histories of well known local people
The stories of the more well known local people have been recorded.
Perhaps the earliest of these is St Richard de Wyche who was born in Dodderhill and later became the Bishop of Chichester.
Much later during the Victorian and Edwardian periods the local press recorded the lives of our well known local people, and some of these life stories are also recorded in books. Perhaps John Corbett the “Salt King” is our most famous local person and greatest benefactor. However there are others.
