9780091902070: I Never Knew That About England

This is the ultimate journey around England. Christopher Winn takes us to each county, to see where history happened, where people and ideas were born, where dreams took flight and where men and women now rest from their labours. To tread in their footsteps, to touch and experience some of what inspired and moved them is to capture some of the flavour of their lives and make their stories alive and real. Crammed with facts and information, I Never Knew That About England celebrates the places and people that make the country unique and includes history, legends, firsts, supremes, unusuals, inventions, birthplaces and gossip. You'll be able to visit the bridge where Pooh and Piglet played Poohsticks and see where Alfred burnt the cakes. In a small village in Bedfordshire you can visit the graveyard where Long John Silver and Wendy rest. These stories will bring any place that you visit to life (keep one copy in the car and one in the house!) and enable you to discover England's rich and surprising history.

Review:

"A treasure trove of unknown delights!" Terry Wogan "A marvellously entertaining and instructive read- a compendium of facts and anecdotes that offers an exciting new kind of guide to England." Simon Jenkins "I never knew there was so much I never knew!" Gyles Brandreth "a beautiful guide to the lore of the villages, towns and cities of England. After reading about each county, I want to pack the car and go there immediately. It's a Christmas pudding of a book, immensely rich and not to be eaten at one sitting" -- Guy Browning The Times "hoards of fascinating facts, tantalising tales and titillating trivia" The Lady

Book Description:
