BOOK REVIEW: Stratford-upon-Avon’s history charted from the Middle Ages to modern times

STRATFORD-UPON-AVON has a lot to thank Nick Fogg for. Although he was born and bred in the town, he hasn’t lived here for a very long time. But he clings to it with a passion that knows no bounds. His love of Stratford and all that goes with it – including a poet and playwright by the name of William Shakespeare – is such that he’s produced several books on the town (and even a scholarly book on the playwright). His latest homage to this small settlement in Warwickshire is Stratford-upon-Avon – The Biography, published by Amberley Publishing at £16:99.
