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 *
