"The Green Roads of England"

by R. Hippisley Cox (first published 1914)

24 illustrations by W.W. Collins; 8 maps; and 87 plans. Much in there concerning Avebury and hillforts.

I found this little gem yesterday - a facsimile copy published by The Lost Library (ISBN 9781906621056).

Edward Thomas mentions this author in the front note of his book The Icknield Way - thanking him for his help and kindness.

Yes a superb little book. A lovely flavour of 'Olde England' present, so different to much of what's happening today. Thanks for mentioning it June.
