About this book

Brewer's Britain and Ireland is a Brewer's-style reference book about place-names and the historical associations of the places they designate. Lying part-way between the traditional gazetteer and a traveller's 'armchair companion', it provides an informative and fascinating 'heritage tour' of thousands of places and place-names in every part of the islands of Britain and Ireland. It gathers together in one A-Z volume the linguistic, historical, folkloric and literary associations behind thousands of locations in the British Isles, both celebrated and less well-known, from Ashby-de-le-Zouch to Blubberhouses, and from Wigton to Wetwang.
