A WORCESTER writer has released her second book charting some of the county's little known architectural oddities.

Ann Moore's More Curiosities of Worcestershire, focuses on the weird and wonderful with examples of modern buildings and ancient cave dwellings, freaks of nature and bizarre burials.

There is a good deal of emphasis on the Vale in the book, with sites highlighted in Evesham, Pershore, Ashton-under-Hill and Bredon, among others.

Ann, a former English teacher, says the book is aimed at those interested in learning something about their local heritage or those who find themselves at a loose end and fancy visiting a curiosity near them. She also wants to record them se things before they are swept away.

"I have a desire to record things before they are lost, that may be of historical significance or which simply make a person wonder or smile," she says.

She says she spent a lot of time doing research but was also helped out by other people.

More Curiosities of Worcestershire is published by Eyelevel Books and is available from bookshops, priced £6.95.
