Nottinghamshire Place Names Paperback / softback
This dictionary of Nottinghamshire place-names examines their origins and meanings.
It includes not only towns, villages and hamlets, but also rivers, streams, Hills, fields and woods, as well as streets, buildings and public houses.
A comprehensive description of the origin and evolution of each name is given, which brings to life the history of the place in a new and remarkably revealing way.
Few are aware of the background of the names that are part of our everyday language, and Anthony Poulton-Smith brings this aspect of Nottinghamshire's rich history to life.
