Synopsis

A Grim Almanac of Leicestershire is a day-by-day catalogue of 366 macabre moments from the county’s past. Featured here are such diverse tales as mining disasters, freak weather conditions, industrial catastrophes, train crashes, and tragic accidents, including the Oadby woman who was killed by a wasp sting in 1925 and Dorothy Cain, who performed her first ever parachute jump in 1926—without her parachute. Among the murders detailed in this volume are the assisted suicide of the vicar of Hungerton in 1925, and the unsolved "Green Bicycle Murder" of 1919 at Little Stretton. Generously illustrated with 100 pictures, this chronicle is an entertaining and readable record of Leicestershire’s grim past. Read on if you dare!
