About the book

Have you ever wondered…

  • Why did listeners campaign to ‘Free the Ambridge One’?
  • How many of the Horrobins have spent time at Her Majesty’s pleasure?
  • Who fell to his untimely death from the roof of Lower Loxley Hall one stormy January night?

For the answers to all these questions and many more, dive into this fascinating miscellany and become an Ambridge expert.

It’s been over 60 years since the familiar dum-di-dum-didum- di-dum of ‘Barwick Green’ first brought The Archers to our airwaves, and in that time millions of listeners have followed the everyday lives of country folk in Ambridge. This new companion, which brings together facts and trivia about characters, controversies and country customs in one handy volume, will delight avid addicts and keen newbies alike.
