Dick Turpin Rides Again

Colin Barrow

Published by Cyberpress

At Diddlebury Cross, Dick Turpin ‘holds up’ Lady Rose Bush, not for money or jewellery, but for a pack of toilet rolls!

In the meantime, Hazel Nutt wants her son, Timothy Nutt, to propose to Georgia Shovelbucket, the daughter of a wealthy cookie manufacturer, ‘Shovelbucket’s Cookies! But neither Timothy nor Georgia is in love with each other, and so Timothy falls in love with Lucy Chain, the daughter of Daisy Chain

Whilst Georgia becomes emotionally involved with Miles Stone, who is Sir William Fortescue in disguise. Disguised as a highway man, Miles, (Sir William) gets shot trying to find and being reunited with his stolen valuables

Dick Turpin decides to take on some new recruits who don’t quite cut the mustard with their villainous ways. Lady Rose Bush once again gets robbed, but this time for money and jewellery

So, a cunning plot created by Sir Roger Rules (the local magistrate) comes about to trap and catch Dick Turpin and his highway men in action

After which there’s only one thing left to do, have a party at the Tavern to celebrate the two loving couples and the capture of Dick Turpin
