Warwickshire, home to William Shakespeare, Rupert Brooke and the legendary Lady Godiva, boasts a rich and engaging history. Revealed within is a plethora of entertaining facts about Warwickshire’s famous and occasionally infamous men and women, its towns and countryside, battles and sieges, literary, artistic and sporting achievements, and its customs ancient and modern, including the 800-year-old Atherstone Ball Game which is still played every Shrove Tuesday. This quirky guide can be dipped into time and time again to reveal something new about the people, the heritage, the secrets and the enduring attraction of the county. A remarkably enlightening little book, this is essential reading for visitors and locals alike.
