Volume 4 on schedule

Posted by: Steve Kington – Date: Monday, April 4, 2011

It has been 2 months since our last news posting, so this blog is well overdue. The two months have seen a great deal of activity, both on shipments of Volume 3 and progress on Volume 4. We have received a few reviews already on the third book (See Reviews Page) and also some letters giving us additional information on the exact locations of four of the posters, including two from The Gower, as requested in the volume text.

A reader of Volume 2, living near Barnard Castle, has also given the exact locations of those wonderful Haslehust posters of beautiful Teesdale on pages 58, 59 and 62 of that book, so thank you to all those people who have written to us with much new data. This is exactly what we had hoped for.

Progress on Volume 4 has been steady and to timetable. The Introduction, Chapter 1 (Lincolnshire) and Chapter 2 (Huntingdonshire and Cambridgeshire) are complete, with chapter 3 (Norfolk) and Chapter 5 (Suffolk) both half written, and chapter 4 (The Norfolk Broads) completely laid out ready for the text to be inserted. We have also received some 260 hi-res images for pages throughout the volume and more are due imminently. As we said, this is going to be a large book and we are currently anticipating some 370 posters to be included. A trio of the new images are found below.
