    Hi I was wondering if you plan to visit Limavady sometime? Would love to give you a tour if you’re planning on coming up.

    • Thank you for getting in touch; no plans in the immediate future, but I will let you know if/when I am in your part of the world. We met a couple of years ago you will remember at the Earl-Bishop conference.

        Yes I remember. Hopefully we can have that conference again sometime! Out of that conference the Earl Bishop Heritage Trail was developed and is being launched on 16th July. You might also be interested in the Beresford Obelisk which has recently been restored by the Follies Trust. If you plan on coming up please email me.
