News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

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!!!
