Please note that these are second-quality books. The covers or corners are a bit bumped or scuffed on these books, which is why we're selling them at a reduced price. The contents are fine - it's just that they suffered a bit during transit from the printers and we don't feel we can charge you the full price for them.

The Customs and Folklore of Grunty Fen is the third of Mr Christopher South's investigations into the world of Grunty Fen. This time, Mr South looks into the traditions, attitudes and behaviours of the fenfolk.

From place names to pylons, from sport to superstition, from weddings to winnings, Mr South ranges far and wide across the fen in search of potentially sometimes reliable information, answering such questions as:

Why do brides like cat mange?

Did the dead go by parcel post?

Who is Miss Bucket?

Do dark horses run deep?

How do chimney sweeps use film-free cameras?

Always surprising, sometimes shocking, Mr South's masterpiece has stunned Cambridge University experts who, having travelled to the ends of the earth in search of the truth about human societies, now realise they have neglected the most important evidence right under their noses.


Lavishly illustrated as usual, this book earns its place on every Fenatic's bookshelf, right next to The Authorised Guide to Grunty Fen and Who's Who in Grunty Fen.

105 glorious pages plus an introduction and a plea for help by the author.
