    'An obscure, small, remote country boarding school' on Exmoor, West Buckland kept extraordinarily complete records, particularly for 1907. We know the name of every boy in the school and every member of staff for that year, as well as photographs, cricket scorecards, financial accounts, exam results and records of the Debating Society. From all these sources, Coates has compiled an illustrated diary of the school in its own, Edwardian words, plus biographies of staff members and pupils.
