Leicestershire is advertised as 'a beautiful county at the heart of England, a county where timeless villages really do exist and market towns actually live up to the name. Leicestershire is for those who love the great outdoors...and those with a passion for English history and heritage. It is a county with an unsurpassed variety of places to visit...and the place to experience sporting excellence as well as arts and entertainment second to none.' In Trevor Hickman's new book Leicestershire's fascinating history is the theme, but as in his two previous 'Best of ...' titles, 'The Best of Leicestershire' focuses on the sights that can be seen today. Every feature, village, event, business and town that is described he has visited in the last few months. Old and new photographs are blended together with informative captions and information for visitors. Visitors to this delightful county, together with residents, will welcome Trevor Hickman's new book - an attractive souvenir of the true heart of England.
