The History of Place Names in England and Worcestershire
Wyre Piddle, Dag Tail End, Cofton Hackett, Finstall and Inkberrow.
Just a few of the strangely intriguing names found on the signposts pointing along the lanes leading to the hamlets, villages and towns of Worcestershire in the rural heart of England. Each name is special. Every one of them hints at stories of people and events which shaped this quintessentially English county centuries ago. But what do they all mean? What mysteries lie here? Who named these hills and rivers?
These voices form the past have been painstakingly unlocked in a new book by retired medical doctor, Mike Jenkins, in his new book The History of Place Names in England and Worcestershire which is now available from bookshops and Amazon.
