More About This Title Ley Lines Across the Midlands


Some maintain that ley lines are the result of some "earth force," others that they are the earliest routes marked out across the land. In his new book Anthony Poulton-Smith examines the origins and meanings of these ancient trackways, tracing them on foot and taking in markers that have been in existence for millennia to travel in a straight line from Shropshire and Gloucestershire in the west to Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire in the east.  Whether they are tracked by dowsing or by a simple line on a map, this is a fascinating read for walkers, historians, visitors, and locals alike, and provides a very different view of the ancient history of the Midlands.


Anthony Poulton-Smith is a local historian and the author of more than 350 articles and five books, including Worcestershire Place Names and Derbyshire Place Names.
