With the help of the author I have managed to answer my own question so here are further details of said book.
"There are 105 pages covering 1840-1914. It has 51 illustrations/photos/maps etc. and family trees. Focusing on families/people more than places it sounds good value to me."

Would appreciate more info before deciding whether to purchase. How many pages. How far back historically. How many pictures. What topics are covered? All extremely relevant especially for 12!
I spent most of my life in and around Borstal as Schoolboy/ Scout/ Scout leader/ Workshop and organiser of the best firework display held in the village!!!
