The Great North Road is part of British folklore, the Route 66 of Britain.

However, instead of gas stations and diners we have magnificent coaching inns, part of the living history of our islands. This book takes in the history of these buildings as well as the literature that has celebrated them – from Charles Dickens to J B Priestley.

Roger Protz describes these coaching houses with an expert and discerning eye, producing not only a great pub guide but also a gazetteer of the history and culture that are draped along this iconic road.
