The Cotswolds! One of my favourite places. We used to stay in Long Compton, which was not far from Chipping Camden, but travelled all over the area during numerous short holidays there. In the early 1970s, when I was on holiday in Dorset, I had a boyfriend who came from Tetbury - a holiday romance, I'm afraid it didn't last, although we did keep in touch for a little while. I still think of him occasionally and wonder what happened to him, even after all this time. I wonder if he remembers me!
I have a very faint recollection of seeing a similar book about 65 years ago, when my grandfather came to live with us. It presumably belonged to either my grandmother or one of my aunts, both of whom died in the 1920s or earlier. I can remember being given it to draw in (!), but I don't know what happened to it afterwards.
