Just got back from London and after much time spent in a couple of second hand shops on Charing Cross Road picked up two books from this 1930s series for not much money (£8 and £10 respectively).

I have had the Yorkshire volume for many years, now got the Berkshire and London/Middlesex ones. Obviously they're more historical interest now than accurate reference books, but they're nicely bound in navy cloth with gilt titles, each have a good gazatteer (up to Saxon period) - worth looking out for as nice things to have anyway.

Interestingly the Berkshire one includes Uffington and Wayland's Smithy, now both in Oxfordshire.

(I also picked up Burl's Brittany book and a great big hardback edition of John Aubrey's "Monumenta Britannica" from the early 1980s).
