Product description

Synopsis

This dictionary of "Leicestershire and Rutland Place-names" examines their origins and meanings. It includes not only towns, villages and hamlets, but also rivers, streams, hills, fields and woods, as well as streets, buildings and public houses. A comprehensive description of the origin and evolution of each name is given, which brings to life the history of the place in a new and remarkably revealing way. Few are aware of the background of the names that are part of our everyday language, and Anthony Poulton-Smith brings this aspect of Leicestershire's rich history to life.

About the Author

Anthony Poulton-Smith is a writer and local historian, with over 350 articles and five books to his credit. They include Derbyshire Place-names and Worcestershire Place-names for Sutton.
