Welcome


I work as a freelance consultant to parish councils.  

I also write books, mainly about history, undertake research and heritage projects, and take photographs to illustrate my work. 

Welcome to my website.


British Retail
Published August 2018 in hardback by Pen & Sword.

"In an era when the decline of the High Street is being attributed to the increase in on-line shopping, this is a reminder of how many retail giants began from tiny beginnings and as little as £10, developed by sheer hard work, self belief and an instinct for providing the public with what they needed and wanted, this history is timely and thought provoking."
