Looking through the dialogue on placenames, the old favourites of reference
material were often cited: EPNS, Ecylopaedia Brittanica etc.
For excellent placename reference material, has anyone read Margaret
Gelling's work ? For example 'Place Names In The Landscape' (recently
revised, I understand) or 'Signposts To The Past' (possibly out of print).
Just thought you may find this of some interest.
