Author, John Chandler, is giving people the chance to download his new book.

John launched 'Salisbury, History around us' on the 13th March and now we are able to download a PDF version for free

As people are staying inside more, with less things to do, John wants people to have something to enjoy.

Not only that but as the book talks about the history of the city, it also includes interesting walks that people could do during this lockdown period.

John launched the book at the Rocketship Bookshop on the 13th March

John said that the timing of the release wasn't great, but thinks it could be useful in a difficult time: 

"A week before the lockdown was not a good time to publish a book. All the bookshops have shut and all the shoppers are staying at home. But the lockdown is a good opportunity to read, and, when taking daily exercise, to walk around your home city (while keeping your distance) and appreciate its history."
