The Thirteenth Part of Derbyshire

Between 1954 and 1974, Edward Boaden Thomas wrote his epic 20,000 line poem The Twelve Parts of Derbyshire which was published in its entirety in 1988, two years after his death. My novel The Wood Road North is about the Thirteenth Part of Derbyshire, which is the area around Alport Height.
