The stately-home filled county of Bucks has a brutal and bloody past – and it is all revealed in a new book.

With pestilence, plague, catastrophes and criminals, Bloody British History: Buckinghamshire by Eddie Brazil covers over 1500 years of the most gruesome events in the county’s history.

It contains a story of the cult of Water Stratford, the civil war, the black death and the man who was executed for treason for his part in the gun powder plot.

It is available in paperback on November 4 from £9.99.
