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.

Heatwave

With the heatwave set to continue all next week with temperatures forecast to rise to 28C on Tuesday and Thursday, here's a sultry summer image from Kibworth. The view is from the A6 looking easterly across the West Langton Road towards Tur Langton.


I took this photograph just after dawn, with the mist still lying across the fields. Fortunately, this is not near the section of the A6 which was deemed an Air Quality Management Zone in June 2017, so this is the cool air of the countryside, not the Nitrous Oxide from the thousands of diesel engines trundling through every day.
