In his latest book on the county, Stan Beckensall explores what place names and field names mean, and how they can reveal an intimate part of our local history by linking us to the land they sign and socialise. Northumberland has a rich legacy of such names which can best be appreciated by close familiarity with the landscape. If you find these examples intriguing, you will enjoy the book: Grimping Haugh, Jill's Arse, Little Sloshes, Boggle Hole, Shovelbread and Blowbutts. The text explores a series of sites which demonstrate how place names are derived, and change over time. This study is well supported by a wide range of illustrations ranging from photographs and documents to maps. The detailed research undertaken by the author helps to ensure this is a comprehensive guide to the origins of places within Northumberland.
