Many of you may be interested in the new quiz book which has just been released by Country Books. Compiled by Dick Richardson over a three month period it features 92 pages, and 700 questions on all things Derbyshire.
Mr. Richardson had the following to say about the book:
The books covers all areas of the county – from the north to the south – and no doubt there will be people challenging some of the questions.
I put the book together because quizzes seem to be eternally popular, especially with pubs.
It is always interesting to see how little people know of their own country, which led me to wonder how much local people know about Derbyshire.
Derbyshire topics covered by the book include sport, people, places, history and curiousities. Including such people as DH Lawrence, Sir Joseph Paxton, Sir Alan Bates, and Robert Bakewell amongst others. Featured places include Long Eaton, Shirley, Fenny Bentley, Snelston, Darley Abbey and our very own Kirk Ireton.
