Synopsis
DID YOU KNOW? A gravestone in the churchyard of St Edwards at Leek suggests that the deceased died at the ripe old age of 438! The ashes of Hanley-born Sir Stanley Matthews are buried beneath the centre circle at Stoke's Britannia Stadium. The sun sets twice in Leek each summer solstice. Sarah Westwood from Lichfield was the last woman to be executed at Stafford Gaol, in 1844. THE LITTLE BOOK OF STAFFORDSHIRE is a compendium of fascinating information about the county, past and present. Contained within is a plethora of entertaining facts about Staffordshire's famous and occasionally infamous men and women, its towns and countryside, history, natural history, literary, artistic and sporting achievements, customs ancient and modern, transport, battles and ghostly appearances. A reliable reference book and a quirky guide, this can be dipped into time and time again to reveal something new about the people, the heritage, the secrets and the enduring fascination of the county. A remarkably engaging little book, this is essential reading for visitors and locals alike.
