All (you ever wanted to know) about Christmas
£5.99; published by GET
This book was written as a response to the many people who, having attened my talk on 'The truth about Christmas', said that I should write a book on the subject. I have seldom had more fun in researching a subject - trying to discover when the first Christmas actually took place, searching for the hidden meaning behind 'The Twelve Days of Christmas', and learning the original names of Santa's reindeer.
Shropshire Walks with Ghosts and Legends
£7.95; published by Sigma Press
There are many walks books on the market but most of them only give you the directions for your walk and tell you very little about the area in which you are walking. This book is different - it is packed with stories about the countryside in which you are walking.
There are 20 walks altogether covering all of the county of Shropshire, and they range in length from five to ten miles.
I have written a number of books for the Frith Book Company, all of which are illustrated with numerous photographs from the wonderful Frith photographic archive. These photographs cover the years between the 1860s and 1960s and give a rare insight into a constantly changing world.
