Bizarre Berkshire combines the Thames Valley wit of Jerome K Jerome’s Three Men in a Boat, the historical accuracy of Sellars and Yeatman’s 1066 and All That with a string of ripping yarns for the Royal County’s residents to really get their teeth into.

From the story of the yew tree at the heart of all modern democracies to the world’s first Zebra crossing, from the unique Hocktide Tuttimen of Hungerford to Royal Wedding-wracked Bucklebury – there’s something in this little A-Z guide to gobsmack the sceptical and lighten up the taciturn.

With a special foreword by Sir Michael Parkinson, who lives in Berkshire’s gourmet capital Bray - click Download/View above to read it!

Illustrated by Sally Castle.
