Reviews of the first edition of Interactive Little-known Leicestershire and Rutland

'This is a most attactive, easy to use CD-ROM which provides a wealth of information about the area. The links are easy to use.''
Local History Maganzine

'This CD-ROM is an excellent and fast-loading package packed with information on holy wells, standing stones, old ecclesiastical monuments and carvings and other site information from these two Midlands counties. It's very easy to move around, indexed by subject, place and map, and the 550 illustrations are good; as for the text, it's as reliable as Trubshaw has proved to be in the past. This is recommended for those with both an antiquarian interest in this part of Britain and a suitable computer.'
John Billingsley Northern Earth

'This CD-ROM is an impressive Earth Mysteries resource for the wired-generation. Starting from the Main index, access to information on a particular site can be gained through the Map of Places menu or through the A–Z of Places menu. The menus are plain, straightforward gateways to an abundance of local folklore and fact.
'Deeper research into specific architectural features can be followed up through the links in the modestly titled 'Introductions to' essays.
'The user interface has a sensible, clear layout, without fancy gimmicks or annoying unwanted 'pop ups', and there are over 550 colour photographs by Bob Trubshaw, with proper informative captions and a very liberal copyright notice.
'All these areas are meticulously linked to the extensive bibliography. I was delighted by the 'Index by Subject' menu where I surfed with wild abandon, picking up links and references that led me all around and about some of my favourite Leicestershire subjects. I found expected pieces on the Humberstone and Beacon Hill, but also new sections on moats, pin offerings, foliate faces, scratch dials, deserted medieval villages, the Wing turf labyrinth, the legends of Belgrave, and of Black Annis.
'[...] Specialised, but highly recommended.'
