This is a really indepth book on Chislet, Kent. The author has split the book into different parishes of the area and it offers the readers the old place names and locations of them. The book also includes a map at the end which shows the boundaries of Chislet. There are old photographs too giving a real feel of the area.
I used this book as part of my assignment with the IHGS (Institute of Heraldic & Genealogical Studies) in Canterbury - and it helped quite a bit with establishing the boundaries of Chislet. Chislet itself has had quite an interesting past and this is certainly one book that you will not want to put down once you start reading it. For the genealogist, local or family historian this is an excellent put together book with lots of useful information to help anyone on their research of the area. Lots of historical facts keeping the whole book in the social context of the time.
I've recommended this book to the rest of IHGS students and I know they are really going to benefit from it.
