People of the Book


After July’s wonderful tea party, we are looking forward this month to the Photographic Exhibition Weekend… and a book launch!
In the midst of the celebrations, a growing delight has been the emergence of an extraordinary written history of the Martyrs. Compiled this summer by Dr Su Barton, the book will be available for viewing and ordering on the 26/27th anniversary weekend.

Running to ten chapters and hundreds of pages, with photographs from twelve decades, it is a monumental effort. We caught up with Su soon after she had made her final visit to the city records office and put her keyboard down at last.
