Kent Cricket Heritage Trust

I’ve been helping out the recently established KCCC Heritage Trust with curatorial advice on their collections.  Care and cataloguing are the priorities and they have a great collection to share more widely.  It was a privilege to handle material like the original 1876 scorebook for WG Grace’s 344 against Kent – the first ever score over 300 and his highest.  There are many memories of the 1970s glory years to bring a tear to the eye of us Kent fans, but also an eye on contemporary collecting.

Hand-held Heaven

Was published in `Best of British’ in June.  The ice cream weather may have gone, but it was lovely to see my piece, subtitled `The golden age of ice-cream’, fronting up this summer-themed issue.

`Belvedere Village’ to be published in `Bygone Kent’

`Belvedere Village – Victorian Prayers and Profit’ is a primary source- based article on the rapid development of Upper Belvedere in the 1800s.  It’s a tale of pubs and patrimony, crooks and committees, old salts, villas and watercress.  `Bygone Kent’ is the magazine of Kent’s history and `Belvedere Village’ will appear shortly.
