This England - - News -

This new 100-page mag­a­zine is a cel­e­bra­tion of Eng­land’s his­toric counties (no Cum­bria or Mersey­side here!), with a fea­ture de­voted to each one, and il­lus­trated through­out with stun­ning colour pho­to­graphs. De­scrip­tions of the main char­ac­ter­is­tics of the county are ac­com­pa­nied by de­tails of the ma­jor towns and cities, his­toric sites, lo­cal cus­toms and cu­riosi­ties, re­gional food and drink, and a se­lec­tion of fas­ci­nat­ing facts. There are also pan­els high­light­ing some of the fa­mous peo­ple who hail from each county and a se­ries of “county quo­ta­tions” from writ­ers and poets.

From Northum­ber­land, York­shire and Cum­ber­land, through Staffordshire, Le­ices­ter­shire and Shrop­shire, to Devon, Corn­wall, Sus­sex and Kent, Eng­land’s 40 tra­di­tional counties are a colour­ful patch­work, a ta­pes­try cre­ated over hun­dreds of years by ge­og­ra­phy, his­tory and the men and women who have lived and worked within their bound­aries. Each one is dif­fer­ent from its neigh­bour, with its own story to tell, its own land­scape, its own cus­toms and tra­di­tions, its own cities, towns and vil­lages and its own dis­tinc­tive char­ac­ter and flavour.
