Bilbury Grange is the second in Vernon Coleman's series of Bilbury books. The place is the English county of Devon. The time is the 1970s. A young doctor, just married and in a new home (a vast and rambling country house in desperate need of repairs and renovation), has taken over a small village practice when suddenly the authorities decide that the village isn't big enough to have its own doctor. The villagers decide otherwise. Bilbury is the village everyone dreams of living in. It's the village where people speak to strangers and where doors are left unlocked. Bilbury Grange is the story of village life in the 1970s and it centres on the young doctor and his lovely wife. But its also about the people who live there and it is a story of great happiness and joy, some tragedy and many dramas.
