Intriguing Wiltshire
  • Description

Wiltshire, the most central county in England, is full of glorious countryside, historic buildings and a thriving city, towns and villages. However, lurking not far beneath its surface is a host of oddities and peculiarities that turn the apparently staid and conventional into something much more intriguing.

With inspiration taken from old topographical books on the County of Wiltshire with their splash of monochrome photography, this volume bursts into colour into different themes of discovery, from public works of art to roadside furniture, all showing Wiltshire (and Swindon) in a different light.

The main theme running through the book is an A-Z Gazetteer of places within the county and the appealing – sometimes decidedly quirky – objects and features to be discovered in them.

With ordnance survey grid references shown for most of the subjects they can be readily found and it is, almost all, free to see. If you think you know Wiltshire, read this fascinating and profusely illustrated book and think again...

From an early age Kenneth Jones has been interested in photography, railways, natural history and topography. With a passion to search out all that intrigues him in town and country, with camera in hand and wife, Elizabeth and trusty dogs at his side he has set his sights on a journey of discovery. He was educated in Slough Grammar School and worked in plastics production in many processes for all his working life. He, his wife and dogs now enjoy a large garden in a village near Salisbury with a 16mm scale railway, chickens and ducks, together with sojourns into the county seeking out new adventures.

Imprint: Halsgrove. ISBN 978 0 85704 286 6, hardback, 297x210mm, 160 pages. Published July 2016.
