Tales of the CountryTales of the Country Brian Viner and his family had enjoyed much about their nice little middle-class patch of north London, but gradually realised they were suffering from a severe case of 'metropause' - the desire to swap the hassles of London life for the serenity of the countryside. After a long search they found the house of their dreams in rural Herefordshire. But is the quiet life all it's cracked up to be? More importantly, where does one go to get a decent cappuccino? A Year in Provence with less sunshine but more laughs, Tales Of The Country is a wonderfully entertaining and heart-warming account of the Viners' adjustment from town to country. Full of anecdote and character, it is a superbly beguiling book about what is really important in life, and the joys and trials encountered along the road towards it.

Tour HerefordshireHerefordshire (Pevsner Buildings of England S.) "Not a mile visually unrewarding or painful" Pevsner wrote of this attractive rolling county on the borders of Wales, studded with red sandstone churches and appealing villages of timber-framed and brick houses. There is a rich medieval legacy, from tiny county churches with the distinctive wiry Norman sculpture of the Herefordshire school, to the inventive Gothic of Abbey Dore and Hereford Cathedral. Later highlights include endearing oddities such as the icing-sugar Gothic of the eighteenth century church at Shobdon, and Robert Smirke's grandiose neo-Norman Eastnor Castle. Tour Herefordshire.
