Description

Weird, spooky, gruesome, humorous, and strange but true things about Britain's most landlocked county come alive in The A-Z of Curious Staffordshire. Here the reader will meet forgers, poets, aristocrats, politicians and some infamous residents of the county, including William Palmer, the Rugeley Poisoner, and the Cannock Chase Bigfoot. This is the county that brought us Josiah Wedgwood, Sir Robert Peel - twice Prime Minister and creator of the Metropolitan Police, and Captain Smith of the Titanic; here too was found the largest hoard of Anglo-Saxon gold ever found. To sum up, eccentrics, legends, folklore, murders, scandals, ghosts, incredible characters and oodles of wow factor, all may be found within the pages of this book.show more
