An English Experience: Exploring the Backroads and Byways of Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and Hampshire by Marge D. Hansen

An English Experience: Exploring the Backroads and Byways of Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and Hampshire, by Marge D. Hansen, can be described as a companion travel book, AND an armchair travel book. Charming, historically rich, architecturally opulent villages begging to be explored are hidden in the countryside within a few hours drive from London. This small, slim, easy-to-pack-and-carry book serves to enhance a journey to the English countryside. It features villages along the sandy coast and fertile fields of Hampshire, delves into the history and ancient mysteries of Wiltshire, and reveals Gloucestershire?s less visited Cotswold jewels. This book fills a niche for the knowledgeable traveler who wants to experience living history and discover the unexpected?enlightenment as well as adventure.The book is a collection of 15 unique ?descriptive pieces.? Each chapter is divided into four sections: The Tale details an original story about a chosen site ? an ancient church, inn, pub, manor or stately home, castle or fortress, local point of interest ? or person associated with a specific village. A variety of narratives such as historical insights, chilling ghost tales, humorous anecdotes, interpretations of legends and myths are written to appeal to a diverse readership. The Village Today provides a vivid portrait of the village as it is today and describes sites to see and places to visit that relate to ?the tale? the reader has just enjoyed. Finding the Village offers driving directions to the village and specifies major roadways, smaller routes, and landmarks along the way. Nearby Places of Interest invites readers to expand their travel horizons and visit other attractions near the destination village.
