Product description

Review

This is a book so meticulously and scruplously compiled that it deserves not only a salutation, then, but scrutiny. And everyone who lives in this country and is curious about it should have it on a shelf, ready to take with them before going for a long, curious walk. (Nicholas Lezard, The Guardian)

Just the (almost) pocket-size reference manual you need to find out the true meaning of your home town or village. (Suffolk & Norfolk Life)
