England

England!

My parents bought me a great book for Christmas called "I Never Knew That About England" (by Christopher Winn).  It goes through each of the 39 counties with points of history that most of us, even the English, never knew.

So I thought I would share some of the points with you as I get to each county.  Just ignore if you want - but I am hoping that the typing will mean that I remember what I have learnt!! 

So I shall go through, as the book does, alphabetically - Starting with Bedfordshire.
