About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Not history
Location Blackmore, Essex, United Kingdom
Introduction I am a keen amateur local historian who has always lived in the CM4 postal district (Ingatestone and Blackmore). I am currently running an interim blog for the Essex Society for Archaeology and History - see - and have recently completed a Certificate in Local History at the University of Essex. The purpose of this blog (which began in 2007) and partner website is simply to encourage everyone to consider, explore and learn about their local heritage and history. The Internet is a marvellous resource and enables people from around the corner and around the world to share. Enjoy the journey of discovery.
