February Update

St Albans Hertfordshire Cathedral pulpitum martyrs by Charles Gurry

It`s been a busy few weeks for me as I continue to research my Churches of Essex book for publication in 2025. I`m now at the stage of revisiting the churches to photograph them for the book and have been delighted to have been accompanied by some eminent historians on my travels. My Churches of Sussex volume is scheduled for publication on 15th July 2024.

 

Over 25 years ago I had a knock on my door from a couple researching a 200 year old diary they had purchased from a secondhand bookshop. It has hardly crossed my mind since but I`m delighted to say that the fruits of their research have appeared in a splendid little book which I have throughly enjoyed. Here is the link:
