Very pleased to announce that I will be appearing at this year’s BBC Countryfile Live when it makes its Northern debut at Castle Howard. I will be holding a talk on all-things historic countryside and of course, my book, Pilgrim Routes of the British Isles. (more…)
To mark the 1-year anniversary of the fabulous YouTube channel, Viral History, they have released a brand new series of films celebrating some of the best female historians around. (more…)
A little late to be classified as “news” perhaps, but I am delighted to announce that the new MA in English Building History (which I developed) is now available at the University of York, with applications for the September 2018 intake open (though places are almost filled!) (more…)
After several months of keeping this very big secret, I am extremely proud to announce my next book: Heaven On Earth, an illuminating narrative of the conception and legacies of twenty of the world’s greatest cathedrals interwoven with an exploration of the lives, legends and scandals of the people who built them. Heaven On Earth will be published by Head of Zeus, and as soon as I have a confirmed release date, I will post it. I don’t want to give away too much more at this time, but if you would like an idea of what can be expected from the book, the synopsis can be found below.
Just a quick reminder that there are a few remaining tickets available for my talk on ‘Pilgrim Routes of the British Isles’ at Ripon International Festival, Tuesday 6th September, 3pm at Ripon Spa Hotel. (more…)
Just a quick note to say I shall be out ‘n’ about this summer, traversing the moors, dales and peaks of the North, as I promote my forthcoming book, Pilgrim Routes of the British Isles. (more…)
Just a short message to say I am now represented by Specialist Speakers for all types of speaking engagements.
I have been invited to speak on the importance of researching your home at The Listed Property Show (in association with Historic England), on Sunday 13th March at Harrogate HIC – one of two locations of the Listed Property Owners Club annual event.
If you are maintaining, altering or renovating your listed home – or even looking to buy one – The Listed Property Show is not to be missed!
