Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Dictionary of British Place-Names (Oxford Quick Reference) (Paperback)
Bought this as a christmas present for my parents. I was having trouble knowing what to buy for them and saw this suggested in a sunday supplement, as they love to travel around the British Isles i thought it would be a good novelty present. However it's so much more than that and they are thrilled with it. Great to keep in the car when you are out travelling and wondering why towns and villages have such unusual names. They are yet to find a place not listed and i would certainly recommend this book as a gift for those tricky customers who have everything!
