A very nerdy footnote
Although I have based many of these web pages on the researches of L.R. Cryer, I have not been able to disccover any biographical information about him. Not even his first names.
All I've been able to establish is that he wrote three other books or booklets:
I suspect that he moved from Essex to Barrowby in the 1970s, then to Caythorpe, and afterwards to Skillington. But alternative scenarios are possible.
