A Cestrian Song - Explorations Within the Extraordinary Hinterland of Cheshire History
Eli Lewis-Lycett (2023)
Beyond the Roman ruins and great country houses, the county of Cheshire is home to a remarkably rich heritage that has seen many of its towns and villages play witness to events connected with some of the most famous periods of broader English history. As a result, a fascinating patchwork of stories are left to us, many of which have since come to reside somewhere between the realms of fact and folk-tale fiction. A Cestrian Song brings together a selection of explorations into the most intriguing of those stories, with country mystics, vanished castles, and murderous medieval rebellions being just some of the topics brought to life in its pages.
