Welcome to the Hope of the Vale website.
Some of you will no doubt be familiar with the printed versions of Hope of the Vale. The first edition was published in 1985, followed by a second, revised edition, in 1995. Since that time, Clive Hamer has spent many years working on the narrative for his book, and continues to do so, although a little more slowly these days. We hope that you enjoy the fruits of Clive's labour in this new format.
Over time, material on this site will be updated with new information, some of which Clive himself has discovered, as well as that provided by other family members over recent years. Additionally, with further relevant information becoming available via the internet almost on a daily basis, we will be able to enhance and expand that which is already provided on this website.
We have other components in mind to enhance the website, such as a forum, for family members to be able to contribute and correspond. Keep an eye on the site to see what is new....
