West Country Weather Book - Barry Horton

Barry Horton, 1995, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good. Newspaper clipping, Daily Mail featuring the author, pasted to the contents page.

Centred on Bristol and Bath Including South Gloucestershire, Somerset and West Wiltshire. Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the introduction: “Our weather is notoriously fickle and defies all attempts to categorize it. We talk about it, make jokes about it, hate it or love it, and then go out for a walk in it! Whether it’s the rain in your face, sun in your eyes or wind in your hair there is no escaping it. Yet our recollections are very selective and memories fade. Where are the long hot summers of our schooldays? The huge snowdrifts of winter and when did the floods hit Bristol city centre… or did we just imagine them? All these questions are answered in this fascinating catalogue of newsworthy West Country weather, past and present and spanning several generations. Barry Horton has effectively ended all pub time disputes over hottest summers and coldest winters.”
