Customer Review

on 30 October 2009
This book was published in 2004, I'd never heard of it until seeing it mentioned in a recent newspaper article. It contains a collection of beautifully framed black and white photos of some of the quirkiest place names in Britain. Some are atmospheric, others in juxtaposition on facing pages to add an extra amusing dimension. After the photographs, there follows a brief description of where each place or village lies, and there is a map to help locate them. I'd have liked to see these descriptions closer to their respective photographs rather than bunched together at the end, but that's a minor quibble.

The author also gives a brief résumé of how he came to make the journey during which he took the photographs.

Inevitably there are omissions but all in all it's an excellent find - just the thing to occupy those long-staying guests for a few moments when they're getting in the way! Sit them down with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and, as long as they have a sense of humour, they should be thoroughly happy. It also makes a perfect present for someone who has everything. I've just bought one for an 84-year-old who loves photography and says there's nothing he needs. It would make a good Christmas stocking filler too.
