I originally spent more than a week flicking through these pages, alone, and in the safety of my own living room. Christopher Winn's Yorkshire seemed like a truly magical location, full of charm and character. Just the sort of place, I thought, to take a lady for her latest 39th birthday.
Having a head like a sieve, I was very pleasantly surprised to find that I did seem to be retaining an awful lot of the information I was reading. I had definite visions of visiting quite a large number of these locations with my former wife and of imparting Mr Winn's facts and figures to her, completely from memory. She, in turn, would obviously have been hugely impressed by my efforts, to the extent where she might (only MIGHT, mind you) have actually smiled at me.
I put such a ridiculous level of optimism down to the ease with which stuff of interest was popping into my head and then taking residence in it. And I put that down to Mr Winn's smart presentation. Rather than simply having pages and pages of writing in the same typeface the author has, very cleverly, managed to emphasise (almost as bullet points) the relevant details of WHY these places are especially noteworthy. Combined with the beautiful little black and white illustrations provided by his wife, Mai Osawa, it makes the book a very interesting read.Read more ›
