From Zawn Organ, Cornwall to Zoar in Shetland via Zion Place in Somerset and Zulu Farm, Oxfordshire, The Z-Z of Great Britain provides an essential profile on each and every zed locale in the land and, thoughtfully, instructions on how to get there. Visit, perhaps, the hamlet of Zabulon in Carmarthenshire, Wales.
Meet Gareth, Val, one dog that's called Tim, another that isn't, and have a go on the sit-on lawnmower.
Z-Z also includes detailed maps and a unique rating system to cut the hassle of planning your next zedventure.

Review by MiaCulpa
Thanks to Mr Wills, I now have the perfect guidebook of the British Isles. As I have a special attachment to the letter "Z" I have always sought out "Z" related places, so Wills's "The Z to Z of Great Britain" is of great interest to me.Listing every town, village and geographical location in Great Britain, starting with the letter "Z", Wills writes knowingly on their history, geography, where their name derives from, and as a bonus, their links to the English Civil War, which I feel has been too often neglected in travel guides over the years. I'm particularly taken with Zennor in Cornwall, and plan to visit in the near future to have a pint or two at the Tinner's Arms.
