Welcome

This blog is about my interests in history and photography. I have always enjoyed discovering something new about the past, and there is always much to discover.

I am always pleased to chat about the subjects covered in my books and to hear about new historical research projects which I may be able to help you with.

I can also present illustrated talks to local history and heritage societies on a variety of subjects, some quite obscure, and I have my own audio-visual equipment.

If you would like to chat about a book, project, visit or idea, in the first instance, please contact me by email here.

Leicester History Tour

I cannot resist the temptation to see how my books are selling on Amazon which provides authors with various statistics. This is the graph for sales of my little pocket-sized book 'Leicester History Tour' which was published a few months ago.


Of course, statistics can be used to prove anything and interpreted in many ways, but it is interesting to see the peaks which occur every few days which take my book into the top 20,000 on Amazon out of over six million.

It also proves that Leicester sells! A few years ago, it was just a city in the East Midlands. now, for reasons we all know, it is on the worldwide stage.
