Tiny Britain

Author: Dixe Wills

Publisher: AA Publishing (2018)

The very first compendium of Britain's most interesting diminutive attractions, written in an amusing, accessible style. Puts the spotlight on Britain's tiniest treasures for the first time and uncovers fascinating facts and anecdotes about all 60. Includes up-to-date practical information on getting to each tiny place via public transport. Highlights special features to look out for. Praised by BBC Countryfile Magazine for writing 'intelligently and amusingly, with evident excitement and imagination', Dixe Wills unleashes his trademark style on the tiniest attractions in Britain. Beautifully presented in full colour throughout, the book uncovers 60 of the country's loveliest and most diminutive places to visit. Be it a castle, cathedral, cinema or pub, a museum, theatre, wood or stately home, these little gems are all united in their lack of size, making many of them so easily overlooked they are known only to locals. Often representing a microcosm of British local history and attitudes, many of these tiny places date from a time when big and brash was frowned upon and small was definitely beautiful. Each entry features information on how to get there using public transport, when best to visit the attraction, a concise round-up of its history and any must-see features.

Words Of Mercury

Authors: Patrick Leigh Fermor, Artemis Cooper

Publisher: John Murray (2004)

Patrick Leigh Fermor was only 18 when he set off to walk from the Hook of Holland to Constantinople, described many years later in A Time of Gifts and Between the Woods and the Water. It was during these early wanderings that he started to pick up languages, and where he developed his extraordinary sense of the continuity of history: a quality that deepens the colours of every place he writes about, from the peaks of the Pyrenees to the cell of a Trappist monastery.
