About the book

Celebrate the magic of Denman and 70 years of history with this lavishly illustrated gift. With never-before-seen images from the rich archives, Denman is the perfect souvenir for past and present students of Denman.

From the beginning, this educational venture was shared among the WI, each county even banding together to furnish separate rooms of the college. Seventy years later, Denman is still the WI's centre for learning, offering a wealth of opportunities to acquire new skills in cookery, craft and lifestyle - a reflection of the activities which the WI has fostered since the earliest days.

This engaging book follows the establishment of Denman as a centre for education, through the development and expansion of the buildings and landscape, to student life and the exciting future plans for the college. Denman is a delightful collection of fond memories, a superb present for budding students and a fascinating visual behind-the-scenes guide to life at Denman.

"Denman is a place where members not only learn everyday practical things, they also come to be inspired to widen their horizons, so that life and the living of it becomes more important and worthwhile."

- Janice Langley, Chair NFWI
