Excerpt from Highways and Byways in Northumbria This book deals chie y with the modern County of Northum berland, all that is left of the ancient Kingdom of Northumbria, but as the historical interests of the one are intertwined with those of the other, it was decided to adopt the more comprehensive term. Northumbria casts a steady light on Northumberland. The inhabitants of the most northern of our English counties have always been famous antiquarians and historians, and they know the books on which knowledge of the local past must be based. I think I have mentioned in the text all authors to whom I have been indebted, but for the use of those who still have before them the pleasure of exploring this most interesting and most romantic county a few of the more important authorities may be cited.

Between the end of the nineteenth century and the Second World War Macmillan published a much-loved and extremely successful series of books under the title of 'Highways and Byways'. In them, the authors took readers on a delightful guided tour of the country, county by county, pointing out places of interest, key historical events and local lore and legend. Now, Macmillan is reissuing - in one beautifully designed volume - a selection of those highways and byways, which affords contemporary readers both a charming period piece and a wonderful glimpse of the very best of Britain.
