Rating
"A Grim Almanac of Cambridgeshire" is a day-by-day catalogue of 365 ghastly tales from around the county dating from the twelfth to the twentieth centuries. Full of dreadful deeds, macabre deaths, strange occurrences and heinous homicides, this almanac explores the darker side of the county's past. The wicked, the mad, the violent and the bad are all crammed into this volume. Here are stories of tragedy, torment and the truly unfortunate with diverse tales of highwaymen, murderers, bodysnatchers, duellists, poachers, witches, giants, Fen Tigers, rioters and rebels. Joining them are accounts of tragic suicides, accidents and opium eaters. The author takes us to prisons, bridewells and workhouses and even on to the gallows as the condemned face their final moments. Neil R. Storey's new book is generously illustrated with rare and unusual engravings and photographs. This chronicle is an entertaining and readable record of the darker history of Cambridgeshire. Read on...if you dare.
