This is the bees knees on Country Life !,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Shell Country Alphabet: The Classic Guide to the British Countryside (Paperback)
Excellent book written by former Cornwall resident Geoffrey Grigson,
(father of Cookery writer Sophie Grigson) A fascinating compendium of
Country lore and facts from all over Britain, arranged in handy alphabetical
order. Would make a handy gazeteer to carry in the car glovebox. Highly
recommended and a great find, from Standing Stones to folklore and customs,
names for landmarks, holed crosses etc. A little gem !

Not only the father of Sophie. He was the husband of the truly iconic cook and cookery writer Jane Grigson.
