Ivory Towers and Dressed Stones: Yorkshire v. 2: Exploring the Follies, Prospect Towers and Other Curiosities of Northern England (A Cicerone guide)
Ivory Towers and Dressed Stones: Yorkshire v. 2: Exploring the Follies, Prospect Towers and Other Curiosities of Northern England (A Cicerone guide)
by Jim Jarratt
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Ivory Towers and Dressed Stones: Yorkshire v. 2: Exploring the Follies etc., 26 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Author gives plenty of history behind each of these so-called follies. If you ever wondered what that tower over there is for and whether you can get to it this is the book. And mind your head! It prompted me to go for volume 1 (Lancashire) also.

3.0 out of 5 stars Boots, 25 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Only lasted two years and then leaked disastrously. The inner plastic lining failed along with the rest of the boot where it flexes at the foot/toe junction. But then they did not cost much. You get what you pay for. I then dug out some very heavy leather Galibier mountaineering boots with a steel shank (so they do not flex) designed for proper stuff and demoted them to lowland walking (I am not as young as I used to be - apparently time works like that). Result - dry feet every time. Buy leather and go West young man.


The poetical works of Robert Southey, collected by himself Volume 8
The poetical works of Robert Southey, collected by himself Volume 8
by Robert Southey
Edition: Paperback
Price: £18.71

5.0 out of 5 stars Southey's poetry, 25 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is a poem. It looks nothing like the cheap and nasty paperback pictured here. It appears to be strongly leatherbound (it should be at £50) and is an absolute pleasure to drool over (whilst avoiding spoiling the book itself). Very good condition without marks of any sort. Arrived well on time. Sender did 'what it said on the tin'.

5.0 out of 5 stars these boots were made for walking, 25 Dec 2013

Not used them yet because I have others currently muddied. Will probably use these for social occasions because they are pretty and deserve not to encounter mud. Look good. Arrived well on time. Sender did 'what it said on the tin'.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sling it, 25 Dec 2013

Bought as a present. Presentee has not used it yet. Probably because he already encountered one in his wild youth. No fault of sender who did 'what it said on the tin'.

This review is from: Runes: An Introduction (Paperback)
My copy has a rather boring green cover rather than the pretty red and black cover shown here as I write this. Book in very good condition without marks of any sort. Arrived well on time. Sender did 'what it said on the tin'.

Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars 100 Walks in Yorkshire: Western, 25 Dec 2013

Some useful and interesting walks of varying lengths to suit different walkers.
Because I live near the edge of the area I will look at the 'Eastern' book also.

5.0 out of 5 stars peugeot front wiper blades, 18 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an update and upgrade on my previous review.

The product did not have the part number ordered but this does not seem to matter. I eventually found the attachment clips stuck in the bottom of the packet and the wiper blades fitted well. It rained for the first time recently and they performed well and did not squeak at all (a problem raised by other reviewers). They are a little longer than the old wiper blades and cover more of the screen without going beyond the edge so that is a bonus. I am very happy with them.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Best Math and Logic Puzzles - Martin Gardner, 29 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are intriguing puzzles as you would expect from this author. They seem to have appeared in his previous books but it's nice to have them all together in one volume. A good book to dip into at random. Enjoy!
