Family and Local History

History is a favourite subject of mine and the UK has a fascinating past. That past is still around us with buildings, churches and castles, still standing today. It’s a reminder of our roots.

My 2x greatgrandfather wrote a book called Various Subjects and some of the stories are taken from there. To learn more about this book, click on the link below.
