The Little Book of Dorset
By

Rating
The Little Book of Dorset is a funny, fast-paced, fact-packed compendium of the places, people, legends and true stories about the county's past and present. Here you can read about Dorset's extraordinary characters, strange ghostly happenings, royal connections, peculiar traditions, weird pastimes, bones and curious burials. Not forgotten are the secrets of the fossil-rich coast, towns and villages with odd names and strong literary connections. A reliable reference book and a quirky guide, this can be dipped into time and time again to reveal something new about the heritage and the mysteries of this beautiful county. This is a remarkably engaging little book - essential reading for visitors and locals alike. From Mary Anning to Thomas Hardy, and from the Tolpuddle Martyrs to a statue of Bournemouth's first Inspector of Nuisances sitting on a loo, there are literally hundreds of stories featured here to surprise even those who think they know Dorset well.
