Availability: Out of stock

Author: David Fearnehough

Derbyshire Extremes is a unique record of over 600 extremes in Derbyshire. They could be the first in the county or perhaps the oldest, the longest, the fastest, the finest or even the only one of a particular item. The subject is wide and varied but entries must be special. Do you know Derbyshire has the oldest megalithic tomb, the world's first travel agent, the first astronomer royal, the man with the largest collection of bar towels, the first National Park, the league's first football mascot, the first oilwell, etc. Whatever your interest you'll find something you didn't know, with an index in three sections, villages, people, and the items themselves. This is a book to be left on the coffee table, to be dipped into or to be followed through the comprehensive index, tracing subject, people and places that feature in the book. For those wishing to visit some of the entries, there is information where visiting is possible. In the introduction the author also invites your additions to swell the 600 or so entries in this unique collection of Derbyshire Extremes.
