The following four books have recently been donated to our library:
1. Essex Place Names : This is an interesting book on the development of place names throughout Essex, by James Kemble.
2. Wheels on the Road : by T.R. Nicholson. Gives details of old road maps 1870 to 1940, published in 1983.
3. Fausto Coppi “The Championissimo” : is a small paperback with pictures covering the life and death of Fausto Coppi.
4. “50 More Cycle Rides” : is a folder with loose-leaf pages to take with you on a ride – published in 1996, but looks quite old fashioned in style. Rides are mostly up to 30 miles and are in all parts of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, away from traffic on minor roads, and off-road.
