Epitaphs by Geoffrey N. Wright

Book Description

Inscriptions on gravestones yield fascinating information about the dead, their lives and occupations and the way they lived. There may well be a verse epitpah of a philosophical or moralistic nature, but wit and humour, sometimes uninentional, creep in to enliven the sobre nature of the message. This book traces the background history of churchyard memorials and then describes many examples of inscriptions and epitaphs which somehow bring us much closer to the people they commemorate and the communities in which they lived.

Abbeys and Priories by Geoffrey N. Wright Abbeys and Priories, Paperback (February 2004)

What exactly is an abbey and does it differ from a priory? This book clarifies the seeming confusion by answering these questions and much more besides. This new edition, in a larger format, includes descriptions of over 200 individual sites open to the public and over 90 colour photographs.

Turnpike Roads by Geoffrey N. Wright Turnpike Roads, Paperback (January 1998)

Turnpike trusts formed an important part of English life for over 150 years, from about 1690 to 1840, during which time they made a contribution to economic development before and during the industrial revolution. This book outlines the origins, development, success and decline of the turnpike trusts and some of the features associated with them.
