Intriguing Wiltshire by Kenneth Glyn Jones
|Author||Kenneth Glyn Jones|
|Language||English, Spanish, and French|
Wiltshire, the most central county in England, is full of glorious countryside, historic buildings and a thriving city, towns and villages. However, lurking not far beneath its surface is a host of oddities and peculiarities that turn the apparently staid and conventional into something much more intriguing. With inspiration taken from old topographical books on the County of Wiltshire with their splash of monochrome photography, this volume bursts into colour into different themes of discovery, from public works of art to roadside furniture, all showing Wiltshire (and Swindon) in a different light. The main theme running through the book is an A-Z Gazetteer of places within the county and the appealing ¿ sometimes decidedly quirky ¿ objects and features to be discovered in them. With ordnance survey grid references shown for most of the subjects they can be readily found and it is, almost all, free to see. If you think you know Wiltshire, read this fascinating and profusely illustrated book and think again...
