Description - The Other Side of the Dale by Gervase Phinn

Gervase Phinn is a school inspector in Yorkshire, including the Yorkshire Dales. He chronicles in this book his appointment to the local school inspectorate and then stories of various visits made, with a background cast of brilliant characters such as the chief school inspector, the dazzling secretary who is always getting things wrong, the local aristrocrat who is head of the school governors, potty schoolteachers who should have gone out to grass years ago, and divine children with superb Yorkshire humour.
