BOOK: The Little Book Of Dorset
The Little Book of Dorset is a funny, fast-paced, fact-packed compendium of the sort of frivolous, fantastic or simply strange information which no-one will want to be without.
The county’s most unusual crimes and punishments, eccentric inhabitants, famous sons and daughters, royal connections and literally hundreds of wacky facts about Dorset’s landscape, fossil-rich coast, towns and villages (plus some authentically bizarre bits of historic trivia), come together to make it essential reading for visitors and locals alike.
From Mary Anning to Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, and from the Tolpuddle Martyrs to seaside nostalgia, no stone is left unturned.
