Cheshire Life

David Paul. Illustrated Tales of Cheshire. Amberley Publishing. (15 Aug. 2019)
The beautiful county of Cheshire is one of the most visited of English counties and also one of the oldest. But beneath its rural idyll lies a Cheshire that is surprising and often shocking. Author and historian David Paul brings us some of the county's strange and mythical tales, including the story of King Richard II's hidden treasure at Beeston Castle, the tale of a white rabbit that was said to have inspired Lewis Carroll's character in Alice Through the Looking Glass, and the legend of the muzzled bear at Brereton Hall. These strange and spooky stories, and many more, are featured in this hugely entertaining book.
