Cheese Rolling, Shin Kicking and Ugly Tattoos

(2015)
A non fiction book by

 
Sunday Times bestselling author Vernon Coleman travels through England, from Sidmouth in the south, to Buxton in the north. In this offbeat travel book with a difference the author is looking for evidence that England and the English are still alive, kicking and eccentric. He travels to Taunton, Wells, Lacock, Cheltenham, Hereford, Stratford upon Avon, Bakewell and Buxton. He visits Stroud, Gloucester and Eyam and meets some extraordinary characters. On the way he investigates cheese rolling and shin kicking and discovers the difference between a city and a town. He reveals the surprising truth that England is officially no longer a nation, and feeds the swans on the river Avon. He explains the difference between a Bakewell tart and a Bakewell pudding and reveals why England has so many pubs.
Vernon Coleman is the author of over 100 books (most of them available as Kindle books on Amazon) which sold over two million copies in paperback and hardback in the UK alone. His books have been translated into 25 languages and sold all around the world. Vernon Coleman is medically qualified and is a registered GP. He had made numerous TV and radio programmes and his novel Mrs Caldicot's Cabbage War was turned into an award winning movie.
