About This Book

Gloucester is known these days for its fine cathedral and historic docks - but there's far more to the city than these two tourist hotspots, as this excellent new book reveals. Part history, part guidebook, The Story of Gloucester uncovers the city;s heritage from Roman times to the present day, finishing ith a fascinating round-up of other Gloucesters around the world. The author explores over eighty sites of interest, from Gloucester's Roman gates to a long-forgotten spa and from a leper hospital to today's rugby club at Kingsholm, to illustrate graphically how the city has developed. We also discover that much of the historical record is still visible in Gloucester today, if you know where to look for it.
