Description - The Story of Gloucester by Darrel Kirby

Gloucester is known these days for its fine cathedral and the redeveloped docks - but there's far more to the city than these two tourist hotspots, as Darrel Kirby's excellent new book reveals. Part history, part guidebook, "The Story of Gloucester" uncovers the city's heritage from Roman to modern times. The author explores over eighty sites of interest, from Gloucester's Roman gates to a long forgotten spa, from a leper hospital to today's rugby club, to illustrate graphically how the city has developed. We also discover that much of the historical record is still visible in Gloucester today, if you know where to look for it. Useful information for visitors is provided, and also included is a fascinating round-up of all the other Gloucesters - in Australia, Canada and the USA.

Buy The Story of Gloucester by Darrel Kirby from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
