This is a collection of short stories based on the weird and wonderful world of countryside traditions. They are funny and quirky stories, trailing all over Britain, poking gentle fun at some of the traditions the UK currently enjoys.
It clearly written with love and written very well, each county enjoying a new and often quite daft country pursuit. The kind of book you want to dive into for a quick smile and a bit of a giggle about Pipe Cleaning and Duck Quacking.
The crazy thing is that if you’ve ever visited a village fair, or spent time on a village green, you’ll believe these quirks are perfectly possible. It’s like something from the Carry-On films – innocent silliness, with a touch of the Archers thrown in for good measure. It’s a lovely book which you could give your grandmother as a birthday present and your best mate for a giggle.
