A glorious miscellany of good stories, legends and fascinating facts about England
This is the ultimate journey around England. Christopher Winn takes us to each county, to see where history happened, where people and ideas were born, where dreams took flight and where men and women now rest from their labours. To tread in their footsteps, to touch and experience some of what inspired and moved them is to capture some of the flavour of their lives and make their stories alive and real. Crammed with facts and information, I Never Knew That About England celebrates the places and people that make the country unique and includes history, legends, firsts, supremes, unusuals, inventions, birthplaces and gossip. You'll be able to visit the bridge where Pooh and Piglet played Poohsticks and see where Alfred burnt the cakes. In a small village in Bedfordshire you can visit the graveyard where Long John Silver and Wendy rest. These stories will bring any place that you visit to life (keep one copy in the car and one in the house!) and enable you to discover England's rich and surprising history.See all Product description

From my brief acquaintance with the book, it has already become an established favourite and, in my opinion, is one in which the reader will derive greatest pleasure in merely browsing rather than in reading it cover-to-cover. Absolutely full of interest and highly recommended.
An interesting book: ideal for the coffe table or in the car or caravan, to browse through as you plan your itinerary
