    My name is Martin Melia and I am church warden of St Peter’s church in Catcott TA79HX. As part of our fundraising efforts to restore our church roof we are hosting a talk by local historian and author Michael Cox in St peter’s church at 3 p.m. on Saturday 7th September. Michael is currently researching for a book on King Alfred and is contending that the Battle of Edington was fought near the village of Edington, only 1 mile from Catcott. The talk is entitled ‘King Alfred and the Poldens’ and entrance costs £5.

    I wonder if you would be so kind as to adverise this event to tour members (and anyone else who might be interested)?

    Many thanks

    RE: The Parish Atlas of England: An Atlas of English Parish Boundaries (2017)
    Please could I bring to your attention this major new work of reference aimed at family/local historians, taking seven years, covering every English county in 900 pages, in which I have traced over the County Series collection of OS map 6 inch to 1 mile maps.
    Somereset Heritage Centre and at least 18 county record offices have a copy for viewing (there is a Facebook page – Parish Atlas of England, Malthouse Press), for an introductory offer of £45.00 (retail is £60.00).
    Many thanks for your time.

    Yours sincerely Tim Cockin
