Place Names and Field Names of Northumberland
Available in Stock
The names our ancestors gave to towns, villages, rivers, hills and fields reveal a great deal about our links to the land we inhabit, and few counties are as rich in distinctive place names as Northumberland. Illustrated with photographs, maps and documents – many of them in colour – this book explores a series of sites that demonstrate how place names originate and evolve, and includes such curiosities as Jill's Arse, Boggle Hole and Blowbutts. First published in 2006.
