The Cotswolds are renowned as one of the most beautiful places in England. Many clues to understanding this celebrated landscape are to be found in such memorable place-names as the Slaughters, the Swells, Knave-in-Hole, Spoonbed, Guiting Power, Hidcote Bertram, Ready Token, Woefuldane Bottom and Hetty Pegler’s Tump. With nearly 500 entries, this is the first time that the meanings of so many Cotswold towns, villages, rivers, roads, 

features of interest and the downright bizarre have been 

brought together in one volume. A glossary provides the 

meaning of about 200 Old English place-name elements. 

The book is also illustrated with the author’s photographs.

Oxfordshire is a richly historical and picturesque county. Nearly 600 entries give the meanings of towns, villages, hills, rivers, streams, fords and other places of interest. This is the first time that so many names have been brought together in one book since Oxfordshire acquired a large section of Berkshire in 1974. There is also a selection of Oxford street-names, as well as 

a glossary of Old English place-name elements. The book 

includes photographs by the author.

If you have ever wondered at the meaning of places, then help is at hand.
