"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.

My kids nicknamed it "The Green Toads of Pondland by Hopperley Croaks"!

That made me chuckle..;-)
