A Grim Almanac of Shropshire [9780752486468]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
A Grim Almanac of Shropshire is a day-by-day catalogue of 366 macabre moments from the county's past. Featured here are such diverse tales as mining disasters, suicides, miscarriages of justice, axe murders, executions and tragic accidents, including the Meadow Pit Mining Tragedy of 1810, when four men suffocated from sulphur fumes after the pit caught fire, and the mysterious disappearance of a Lancaster bomber - and its crew - over Shropshire more than sixty years ago. Generously illustrated, this chronicle is an entertaining and readable record of Shropshire's grim past. Read on ... if you dare!
AUTHOR: Samantha Lyon has a degree in publishing from Loughborough University, as well as a Master's degree in criminology and criminal justice. She is a freelance proofreader and is the author of Shrewsbury: A Pocket Miscellany.
