Thank you
to all members who attended the Book launch of our latest main series volume, Lincolnshire Parish Clergy c.1214-1968: A Biographical Register, II. The Deaneries of Beltisloe and Bolingbroke. Nicholas Bennett gave an excellent and entertaining lecture in the Stable chapel, as it was just too cold in the main church! We are grateful to our hosts at Edenham for providing such a warm welcome and a delicious tea.
