The sixth in Cv's series of English County Guides explores Wiltshire. The dramatic sweep of a spare landscape of the Pewsey Vale introduces the historic town of Marlborough. It follows routes towards the west; to Bath and Avon; taking in settlements of Chippenham, Calne, Melksham, Devizes, Malmesbury, and Bradford on Avon. Wiltshire is beautiful and mysterious, spanned by ancient lay lines and runic landmarks such as Stonehenge, The White Horse, and the Avebury Ring. This is an original account of eye-witness experience; fascinating for visitors and informative for those seeking a new place to live. First researched from 1999-2001 and resumed in 2011-12, Cv's series of English County Guides provides descriptions of market towns and villages, for casual visitors and those interested in moving to a different area. The guides contain eye-witness records of natural character, of the villages: the properties, amenities, communication, travel, and business links. Available titles include: Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire, Buckinghamshire, Cornwall, Norfolk, Wiltshire, and Cumbria. Each guide records between one and 200 villages and county towns. There are route maps, colour photographs, and a directory of local services. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Isham.

The third in Cv's series of English County Guides is Buckinghamshire, first published in 2001 - revised and updated in the second edition, 2011. Although it is one of the smaller counties, Buckinghamshire has a strong individual identity, with the Chiltern Hills, steep roads going down through beechwoods and the blue distances of Aylesbury Vale. It is historic, with plenty of Oliver Cromwell and Royalist connections. There are some thriving county towns: Aylesbury, High Wycombe, and Milton Keynes. It is also conveniently close to London. The Grand Union Canal cuts right down from north to south and there are several sailing clubs. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sangita Chauhan.

Cornwall: A County Guide: Barnaby's Relocation ...

With its eccentric shape, tacked on like a long medieval shoe to Southern England, Cornwall is not the easiest shape of an area to research. I began by driving north to Kilkhampton and Morwenstow, then south via Bude to Bodmin and Padstow. From there I moved east to Launceston, visiting Antony and St Germans near the Tamar Valley, and down to Looe and St Austell. The centre of Cornwall disclosed the working face of mining towns such as Bugle and Camborne, their clusters of Victorian terraced cottages built around great quarries and industrial sites. My route around the southern peninsula brought me past some fabulous aspects of the coastline; the uncompromised rocky landscape of Sennen and St Just, or the delightful flower filled vale of Lamorna and the dramatic headland of The Lizard. Cornwall is like another country, carrying its own culture and history, though its energy keeps it moving forward in a present reality. It can provide a blissful escape and equally opens itself to enterprise and new connections. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Damien Connolly.

Gloucestershire: A County Guide: Barnaby's Relo...

The project of surveying Gloucestershire at first seemed to be almost too big to handle, indeed it involved multiple journeys crisscrossing the county. But I think the result reveals the great range of individual character in its many towns and villages: compare traditional Cotswold centers such as Great Barrington and Upper Slaughter in the north east with the intensely industrialized districts of Yate and Filton above Bristol, or the freshness of the Vale of Berkeley bordering the Severn Estuary. To the west the ancient Forest of Dean preserves its own mysterious aura. Gloucestershire is truly impressive and I longed to delve further into its history. I hope that the guide opens possibilities for your own exploration of the area. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sangita Chauhan.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Austin Stack Park is a Gaelic Athletic Association stadium in Tralee, County Kerry, Ireland. It is one of the main grounds of Kerry GAA's Gaelic football and hurling teams. The first game in Kerry GAA played under floodlights took place here in November 2001. The ground is named after Austin Stack, an Irish revolutionary and captain of the All-Ireland winning Kerry Gaelic football team of 1904. It is located in the centre of Tralee. In 2007 plans were approved for its relocation to a site outside the town currently occupied by Ballybeggan Racecourse. In December 2009 it was announced that plans for the new stadium and development are to put on hold indefinitely due to the collapse of the Irish economy and ongoing financial crisis in Ireland. It hosts a lot of the Kerry GAA teams home games, mostly league games for the Footballers and both League & Championship for the Hurlers.

County Fair Portraits

County Fair Portaits, is an honest and moving depiction of Americans in the 1970's shot at county fairs across the country. In 1976, while the United States was celebrating it's bicentennial, photographer Mikkel Aaland was traveling to county fairs across the country capturing photographs of America in it's truest form: through the people. These unique and inspiring portraits have garnered widespread media attention over the years and even landed Aaland an interview with David Lettermen. There are few publications that depict America in such a raw and haunting way. County Fair Portraits tells a story of America unlike any other. Although the world has drastically changed since the collection was first published in 1981, the portraits and stories have remain unchanged, and will forever be a reminder of a unique era and moment in our nation's past. For the first time ever, Mikkel Aaland is bringing back County Fair in three different forms so that everyone can enjoy a piece of America's history. In the foreword, the late novelist James D. Houston compares County Fair to other meaningful works of art: 'It brings to mind Edward Curtis's Portraits of North American Indian Life, and the Dustbowl photos by Walker Evans in Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, and the series by Ansel Adams called Born Free and Equal, recording the lives of Japanese Americans at Manzanar Relocation Center, east of the Sierras, in 1942, and Our Kind of People, Bill Owens' study of hometown groups and rituals. County Fair has that same kind of narrative appeal. These eyes and outfits, the body talk, the tattoos and the jewelry - they tell us, with haunting precision, one of the true American stories'
