Synopsis

Buckinghamshire has one of the darkest histories on record. Its residents included the Dinton Hermit - better known as Charles I's executioner - and Sir Everard Digby, the Gayhurst nobleman who tried to blow up James I, as well as a truly apocalyptic priest at Water Stratford. With Romans running amok in the Chilterns and the Anglo-Saxons terrorising Aylesbury, this chilling catalogue of battles, deaths, diseases and disasters will make you see the county in a whole new light.
