About Henry Buckton

Henry Buckton is a best selling social historian, although he has also written documentary films, songs, and stories for children. He studied at the Somerset College of Arts, and his literary career began in 1985 with the broadcast of his first story on BBC Radio Bristol. Since then he has written several more children’s stories for radio broadcast.

Between 2000 and 2003, he compiled, edited and published four books of celebrity childhood memories under contract to the BBC Children In Need Appeal, in order to raise money and awareness for disadvantaged children. These books included hundreds of original stories written specially for the project by well-known people, such as Emma Bunton, Jeremy Irons, Judi Dench, Nigel Havers, and Annie Lennox.

 

Henry’s social histories include ‘Yesterday’s Country Village,’ which examines every aspect of rural life as it used to be. This book reached the No 1 spot in the WH Smith bestsellers list in their British and Irish History section. And ‘The Lost Villages,’ which visits a number of communities around Britain that were abandoned during the 20th century for various reasons. He has also penned several authoritative titles about the Second World War, particularly The Battle of Britain.

 

He also writes and presents history documentary films for the 1st-take film studio in Bristol which are all available on DVD, and has helped to write a number of television films.

Henry is also the history correspondent for GFM, the community radio station for the Glastonbury, Street and Wells area, on which he gives regular history talks on local subjects.   

 

Henry was born in Somerset and lives near Glastonbury.
