Crickley Hill, The Hillfort Defences 1994

For many years I've been hankering after a copy of "Crickley Hill, The Hillfort Defences" (Philip Dixon & Others, 1994 ISBN: 0-900572-84-1) but have never seen one except upon Dr Phillpotts's bookshelf. I don't think I was paying sufficient attention at the time of publication and the print run was only 600 copies.

The internet is a wonderful place for running such rareties to earth and I am delighted to say that I have finally managed to acquire a copy in excellent condition from Cornell Books in Tewkesbury. So I hope the quality of the referencing on the blog will now improve as I can piece cuttings and years together much more easily having the masterwork to hand.

In case you have been wanting a copy I've just done a quick search on Google and found not one but two more copies for sale: Right now on sale on Ebay or else here: Antiqbook Worse than buses ... you wait for years and then three come along at once!

Anyway, for those of you who want a copy, now's your chance - the Ebay auction has got three days to run and is currently a bargain!
