‘History is wonderfully complex. As a result, it is difficult to bring to life and make relevant, but, my word, your work is a ‘tour de force’.  A quite wonderful performance, full of interesting anecdotes and nuggets of information that create a very real sense of the rich social fabric of Settle society, quite literally, from the ground up!’

‘The light way you present a serious study is so impressive.  You’re teaching us such a lot and often telling us things that are painful as well, but it feels like following an exciting, moving, mystery story.’

'I never knew a graveyard could be so entertaining - it's like 'Who Do You Think You Are' with a sprinkling of 'Horrible Histories'  - brilliant!'
