William Dargue's 'A History of Birmingham Places & Placenames . . . from A to Y'

http://billdargue.jimdo.com/

This is the story of Birmingham's placenames, many of them given by Anglo-Saxons a thousand years ago - and some older still. Discover the meanings of the City's placenames and the history of their locality. There are suggested sights to see - some well-known landmarks, some unexpected surprises, and many of them illustrated. And there are historical overviews of placenames and of the City. A glossary explains unfamiliar terms with local examples and there is a very extensive list of weblinks.
