few of the fascinating subjects covered in Curiosities of Rural Cambridgeshire are even mentioned in the standard county histories and guidebooks. Where can one still see ice-houses, bier houses or malthouses? Where is the last surviving maze? What is a ha-ha? The largest meadow in England is in Cambridgeshire; unique too are the 8,000 year-old bog oaks and the communal bakehouse. Stiles, stones and sundials can be found in Cambridgeshire, but they are disappearing fast, and the message of Mr Jeevar's beautifully­illustrated record of rural bygones is that if we wish to see our heritage before it vanishes completely, then we had better do it now.
