    With the help of @FreshFingers, SLG, and NinjaM , I have written a book about... well, the title is self-explanatory. It's basically my usual hyperbolic narrative, and some pretty pictures. Quite a few are places we haven't published before.

    It will be available on 15th July, from the publishers Amberley, and various other online retailers. It is only a print book, so if you see an e-book download offer, it is not genuine.

    Amazon.co.uk: - http://amzn.to/2aLYsb1

    If you're local and just want to have a look, I will leave a copy to browse in Stockport Heritage Centre in St Mary's Church.
    Cheers :)

    Fabulous Alley, I'll be buying a copy! Bonkers idea -- could you give a talk about it in Stockport, a pub or somewhere?

    Thanks Toby, I'll sign it for you :p As for a talk - I have been asked before, but I wouldn't do that. I did one and it was terrible, so I'll stick to writing :)

    It's a fantastic book. The font is very small, but is has to be to fit in all the information and enjoyably readable narrative.

    Definitely one that everyone should buy.

    Nice work Alley !

    Thank you so much!

    Thank you!. Wouldn't have done it without 28DL :thumb
    I was constrained by space - the requirements of the publisher were 27,000 words and 120 pictures over 96 pages. I had to cut chapters out :(

    If I could, I would have given everyone I know a copy but I just got a few free from the publisher.

    It is now available as an ebook on Amazon and Google. Online preview
