The book has 15 illustrations and a fold-out map - and no index. At a quick glance it contains a lot of information on the manors, which undoubtedly comes from books such as Chauncey and the Victoria County History. There is no bibliography and no reference I could see to the standard reference texts, although several interesting documents, possibly from the parish chest, are quoted and in these cases the documents are identified. Like many such un-indexed local histories, trying to answer a specific question about a person or place which is not directly addressed by the headings is difficult.
