Hampshire's Military Heritage
Hampshire's position on the south coast of England has meant that it has played a key role in this country's military history for centuries. Its military heritage is as diverse as any other county in Britain. In this book author Dean Hollands focuses on the significant people, places and events associated with the military history of Hampshire, from the early invaders and occupiers of Iron Age and Roman Britain to the present day. Iron Age hill forts on the chalk uplands of Hampshire can be seen, and the Roman fort at Portchester is the best preserved in northern Europe. These fortifications continued through the Norman Conquest, Henry VIII's castles, Napoleonic era defences and into the two world wars. Southampton and Portsmouth experienced waves of invaders over the centuries, but were also the home of the Navy and the departure point for British military expeditions overseas, not least for D-Day in the Second World War. Aldershot is famous as the home of the British Army and Farnborough's air show has demonstrated its importance as the centre of British military aviation research since the 1940s. Hampshire's Military Heritage looks at the military history of this county on land, by air and at sea. All those wishing to know more about the military legacy of Hampshire will find this book fascinating.

Barrow-in-Furness has a proud and distinctive identity, embodied in the many fine buildings that have shaped this Cumbrian town. At first glance it appears to be seated firmly in the nineteenth century, but a closer inspection reveals an architectural heritage that reaches back much further than the Victorian era. Barrow-in-Furness in 50 Buildings explores the history of this rich and vibrant community through a selection of its greatest architectural treasures. From the Perpendicular-style Furness Abbey to the Gothic Town Hall, and from the Beaux Arts Public Library to newer buildings that have attracted disdain from local residents, this study celebrates Barrow's architectural heritage in a new and accessible way. Local historian Gill Jepson guides the reader on a tour of the town's finest old buildings and modern architectural developments.

Secret Pinner
Pinner is now part of Greater London, but for most of its history it was an agricultural backwater, though one which experienced great changes. Pinner's past has many fascinating aspects. In the Middle Ages it was part of the Archbishop of Canterbury's huge manor of Harrow, and Headstone Manor and Pinner Park Farm preserve relics from this time. By the early nineteenth century Pinner had its own workhouse, toll gate and a stagecoach service to London. The railways brought prosperous Victorian and Edwardian commuters, whose families made Pinner their rural idyll. As others followed, the area was transformed with new stations, shopping centres and residential areas. Famous people associated with Pinner include Mrs Beeton and names associated with the arts and comedy such as William Heath Robinson and Ronnie Barker. Secret Pinner explores lesser-known episodes in Pinner's history including its first policemen, suffragettes and the family of agricultural labourers who gave their name to Rayners Lane. With tales of remarkable people, unusual events and tucked-away historical buildings, it will appeal to all those with an interest in the history of this London suburb.

Moreton-in-Marsh Through Time
Forming the northern gateway to Gloucestershire's picturesque north Cotswolds, Moreton-in-Marsh stands on two busy roads: the ancient Roman Fosse Way and the main route from Oxford to Worcester. In the nineteenth century up to seventy coaches rattled through Moreton each week, with the arrival of the railway in 1853 further establishing the town as an important thoroughfare. Always a popular stopping place for travellers, it remains a holiday destination for the many visitors who arrive each year. The town as we see it today has Saxon origins, although archaeologists have found evidence of Bronze Age farming activity. It developed as a market town in the thirteenth century - indeed, the weekly Tuesday market continues to thrive, attracting visitors from near and far - and is now growing faster than ever before. Its changing face is evocatively documented in this book, which will be of considerable interest to visitors and local residents alike.

An Invitation to Dream: A Bedtime Companion to Fill Your Sleep with Wonder
Many books put you to sleep without meaning to. But here is a book specially created to send the reader on a long, restful voyage to slumberland and inspire beautiful and creative dreams along the way. It is a soothing bedtime companion, a portal that takes you from the busyness and distraction of the day into an ocean of calm. Words from poets and writers set the mind on a path of discovery and reflection and a celebration of dreams and dreaming: We all have forests on our minds. Forests unexplored, unending. Each one of us gets lost in the forest, every night, alone. - Ursula K. Le Guin. Yes: I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight. - Oscar Wilde. `If we walk far enough,' says Dorothy, `we shall sometime come to someplace.' - L. Frank Baum. Paired with them are lush, romantic images - forests at dusk, castles at the end of a winding road, lanterns swaying in the evening breeze, moonlight on new-fallen snow. The combined effect is like a mandala, something that pulls you in, stills thoughts, inspires mindfulness and dreaming. The book is organised into thematic sections, almost like a menu. When you close your eyes, what do you want to discover? New Worlds, Magic, Love, Mystery,or Peace? Open the book to any page, and may your dreams come true.

The Endings: Photographic Stories of Love, Loss, Heartbreak, and Beginning Again
Featuring some of today's most beloved actors, these piercing photographic vignettes capture female characters in the throes of powerful emotional transformations. Photographer Caitlin Cronenberg and art director Jessica Ennis collected stories of heartbreak, relationship endings, and new beginnings-fictional but often inspired by real life-and set out to convey the raw emotions that are exposed in those most vulnerable of states. Collaborating with celebrated talents such as Julianne Moore, Keira Knightley, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Cronenberg and Ennis developed each character, built her world, and then photographed as she lived the role before the camera. The resulting collection is a bold look at the experience of losing or leaving love and will speak to anyone who appreciates art, photography, and the strength of facing emotional depths head-on.

Historic England: Leicester: Unique Images from the Archives of Historic England
This illustrated history portrays one of England's finest major cities and some of its county towns and villages. It provides a nostalgic look at Leicester's past and highlights the special character of some of its most important historic sites. The photographs are taken from the Historic England Archive, a unique collection of over 12 million photographs, drawings, plans and documents covering England's archaeology, architecture, social and local history. Pictures date from the earliest days of photography to the present and cover subjects from Bronze Age burials and medieval churches to cinemas and seaside resorts. Historic England: Leicester shows the city as it once was, from its churches, parks, streets and alleyways to its Victorian mills and textile factories. Leicester has been at the very heart of the country's political and economic development for over two millennia. Evidence of Roman occupation remains at the Jewry Wall, Cardinal Wolsey lies buried in Leicester Abbey and, in 2012, the skeleton of Richard III was discovered lying beneath a car park. The city grew rapidly in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries with the construction of the Grand Union Canal and the arrival of the railway. These developments encouraged and accompanied a process of industrialisation which intensified throughout the Victorian era; hosiery, textiles, and footwear became the major industrial employers. Today, Leicester is a major distribution centre and has attracted new service and manufacturing businesses through its academic-industrial connections with the engineering departments at Leicester University, De Montfort University and nearby Loughborough University. Leicester remains one of the country's most important cities and this book will help you discover its colourful and fascinating history.

Captain's Dinner
Whether in the shimmering sunshine of the Adriatic Coast or up against a two-and-a-half-meter swell in Brittany, ranging from fjords in the North Atlantic across Baltic ice floes, to Mediterranean lagoons, to the shores of the Black Sea: Captain's Dinner is a maritime journey of discovery through the world of fishing. What does it mean to be dependent on the vagaries of nature on a daily basis? What is it like to haul in fishing nets in rain and gale-force 8 wind? How do freshly caught breams, herring, etc. actually end up on deck by lunch break and on the plate by night? In search of answers, photographer Paul Pfluger braved the wind and weather to accompany 27 fishermen at work on European seas, observing their daily routine over several months. The result is a lively, intimate, and unadulterated logbook of fishing and life at sea, combining captivating portraits of the protagonists alongside their own commentaries on the delicate craft and hard labor that make up a fisherman's existence today, not least when faced with critically-diminished fish stocks and attendant fishing quotas. The featured fishermen also share their own favorite, previously-unpublished seafood dishes, from grilled herbed herring to Irish surf & turf or fried mullet. With more than 50 of these delicious, simple seafood recipes, Captain's Dinner is a must for all those who love and care about the sea and its unique flavors.

Loughborough in 50 Buildings
Today, Loughborough is known for its university's sporting reputation and its industries, but the second-largest town in Leicestershire has a long and varied history. It is believed there is an Iron Age fort on the university campus, and Loughborough is mentioned in the Domesday Book. Loughborough's history is evident in the buildings that stand today in the town. In this book local historian Lynne Dyer investigates these buildings to share the story of Loughborough. The buildings range from the oldest known in the town to some of the newest, and include those occupied by influential figures in Loughborough's history, showing not only who they were built by and the circumstances leading to their construction but also their significance in the social history of Loughborough. Medieval buildings can be found here such as the parish church, Old Rectory and Guildhall, ancient pubs and a manor house, as well as a wealth of buildings from its industrial past including John Taylor's bell foundry, the Great Central Railway and factories such as the Morris Works. The more recent history of Loughborough includes university buildings and a twenty-first-century mural to replace a partially demolished 1960s car park. Loughborough in 50 Buildings explores the history of this fascinating Leicestershire town through a selection of its most interesting buildings and structures, showing the changes that have taken place here over the years. This book will appeal to all those who live in Loughborough or who have an interest in the town.

It was 1905 when the man destined to become Waco's photographer first opened his shop.Fred Gildersleeve documented the city he loved, establishing his legacy through iconic images that have become Waco's visual memory. The 186 Gildersleeve images within capture the spirit of early Waco.Born in 1880 in Boulder, Colorado, Gildersleeve spent most of his childhood in Kirksville, Missouri. Throughout his early years, Gildersleeve sold his pictures for 25 cents apiece to pay for his education, working his way through photography school in Effingham, Illinois before launching his career in Waco.An adventurer, Glidersleeve was known for speeding through town on an Excelsior motorbike--and later in a Model T Ford--with his assistant in the sidecar. He avidly took pictures of everyday life in Waco, becoming the official photographer for Baylor and the State Fair of Texas. From special occasions to sporting events, from construction projects to key figures, Gildersleeve documented Waco's growth as a thriving industrial city during the early days of the twentieth century.Gildersleeve's photos are not just history; they are art. He pioneered panoramas and aerial shots using Waco as his subject. Gildersleeve's photos are now known for their clarity and detail that resemble and surpass modern-day digital photography. The photos in this book take viewers back in time to their favorite Waco landmarks and do so with timeless creativity.
