Chalfont St.Peter and Gerrards Cross by Colin Seabright
Book DescriptionSituated in the county of Buckinghamshire, the two adjacent villages of Chalfont St Peter and Gerrards Cross have very different backgrounds; Chalfont St Peter is steeped in history reaching as far back as the Domesday Book, while its younger neighbour scarcely existed before 1900. Illustrated with over 200 photographs and postcards, this fascinating collection captures the twentieth-century history of the parishes - from the shops and businesses that evolved from the market village of Chalfont St Peter, to the rapid growth and development of Gerrads Cross into a thriving commuter village, which came with the opening of the railway in 1906. As well as timeless views of the Misbourne valley, there are snapshots of urban streets and buildings which have long since been replaced by shopping precincts and new residential development. In more recent times this urbanization has served to virtually unite these two once distinct and rural villages. Chalfont St Peter and Gerrards Cross documents a variety of everyday scenes which are particularly fascinating for those who have known the area and for those who now live in this historically interesting region.

Cheese Rolling in Gloucestershire, Paperback (March 2002)
Each year on May Bank Holiday Monday a bunch of reckless competitors hurl 7lb cheeses down the precariously steep Coopers Hill in Gloucestershire. The aim of the race is to chase the cheese down the hillside to see who can reach the foot first. This book talks about this tradition which has been practised for centuries.
