Grim Almanac of StaffordshireeBook - 2014
A Grim Almanac of Staffordshire is a day-by-day catalogue of 366 ghastly tales from around the county. Full of dreadful deeds, strange disappearances and a multitude of murders, this almanac explores the darker side of the Staffordshire's past. Here are stories of tragedy, torment, and the truly unfortunate, with diverse tales of freak weather, bizarre deaths, and terrible accidents, including the young lad "jellified" after falling into factory machinery, and the deaths of 155 men in the Minnie Pit disaster of 1918. Alongside these are tales of fires, catastrophes, suicides, thefts, and executions -- it's all here. Generously illustrated, this chronicle is an entertaining and readable record of Staffordshire's grim past. Read on ... if you dare!
