Welcome

I work with community-level councils, parish meetings, charitable trusts and neighbourhood planning groups. 

Based in a village on the North York Moors, I write books about history, take on research and heritage projects, and use photography to illustrate my work.

I am a consultant for the Leicestershire and Rutland Association of Local Councils and a freelance Associate of the Society for Local Council Clerks' Local Council Consultancy.

I am aways interested in new projects, working with parish or town councils and community organisations.  If I can be of help, please use the CONTACT FORM or send me an email.

A new book in the making

Amberley Publishing has launched a new series of books celebrating towns and cities in the United Kingdom.   The books will focus on achievements, success stories and heritage.

I have been asked to write about Leicester, including the industries providing employment and prosperity, and the people, past and present, who have contributed to society locally and worldwide.

Telling the story of a city's heritage

I recently completed research for a further ten heritage interpretation panels for the city of Leicester.   Over one hundred panels are already installed across the city and neighbouring historic villages covering key eras in the city's history, from Roman times to the twentieth century.

Working with The Art Studio, Nottingham and the Billesdon Local History Group,  I provided the research, images and basic design for a heritage panel at Billesdon and Rolleston cemetery in Leicestershire. 

The history group had previously compiled a survey of the memorials which is available on line. 

My next talk

I shall be giving a talk on British Retail: shoppers and shopkeepers to the Eskmoor WI in Castleton Village Hall, North Yorkshire, on Wednesday 6 May 2020.
