Up and Down in the Dales by Gervase Phinn

Book Description

From the "Sunday Times" bestselling author Gervase Phinn comes a fourth book of reminiscences about life as a Yorkshire Dales school inspector that will continue to delight and charm fans across the globe. Life for the Gervase Phinn is about to become not unlike the rambling hills of the Dales themselves - up and down and all over the place. After a routine school inspection - and a rather brutal report - culminates with a teacher being forced into early retirement, Gervase is left feeling his year hasn't exactly begun on the right foot. Then the news that his local school is closing down, the accidental demolishment of an historical church (disguised as a disused barn in his backyard), and an injured knee which puts him into hospital. And still Gervase manages to gallantly retain his sense of humour throughout, making this a delightful, charming and thoroughly entertaining read.
