Gazetteer

In ‘Rock Landscapes: The Pulham Legacy’, I described and illustrated just over 40 of James Pulham’s most prestigious sites, and these are listed in Chapter order in the CONTENTS’ page of this website.   In my ‘Site of the Month’ series, I added a further 60 sites, so I have now described and illustrated more than 100 sites.

They are all cross indexed in the following Gazetteer Index in alphabetical sequence under both the name of the site and the town in which they are situated.   Thus, Belle Vue Park in Newport can be found under both ‘Belle Vue Park’ (in italics) and ‘Newport’ (in non-italics).   Links to the brief synopses of the sites in the book are listed under their Chapter Number, and links to the full articles on those featured as ‘Sites of the Month’ are indicated by their month of publication.    Simply click on the link to the site you want.

May 2016 – News Letter

Dear All,

The weather is getting warmer, and summer is on its way.   Now is the time to get out the diary, and plan your visits to all those Pulham parks and gardens that you want to see.   Or perhaps you will be able to come to meet us at one of our presentations?   There are some interesting bookings coming up over the next few months.
