Where’s Ian?.....

I was wondering  where Ian Marchant had got to with The Marchant Macmillan Pie Appeal, as mentioned here….


…where I also wondered what his next book was going to be about.

I checked his blog - which answered both questions…..


Prepare to be transported back to 18th- century England in ‘One Fine Day’ by Ian Marchant’.  A time-travelling, genealogical adventure that brings rural England vividly to life.”

‘Nuff said.

And, a word from the man himself re. how to acquire the book…  https://twitter.com/ThatIanMarchant/status/1634608679205974018?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Eembeddedtimeline%7Ctwterm%5Escreen-name%3AThatIanMarchant%7Ctwcon%5Es1

We’ll be ordering our copy from Stromness Books & Prints - https://theorkneynews.scot/2020/06/21/stromness-book-shop-scotlands-only-drive-in-book-shop/  - a new, well written book is a gift.  An old favourite, re-read, fills a gap – but a new one is…something else.


Decline of Windermere Arctic Charr…

An email  from Matt Staniek

29 MAR 2023 — 

“Climate change and pollution of England’s largest lake in the Lake District world heritage site is looking like it’s going to wipe out the Arctic Charr. A culturally significant practice gone forever. Feel free to email UNESCO as fishing contributed to the Lake District becoming a Unesco World Heritage Site in 2017.”

Rousay, Egilsay and Wyre Booklet…..

This looks dead good –

“The 20-page booklet features up-to-date information on all the islands’ main archaeological and historical sites as well as a bibliography and links for further reading.”

….and it’s FREE TO DOWNLOAD!



That Footprint…

…is still there…
