Never heard of it! Just ordered it. Thanks Lol.

A bargain, Jeffrey. A return favour for the Warlock book heads up, which I am enjoying very much.

Pleased to hear it Lol! I'm hoping to sneak over to Down Ampney when I'm in my 'Glamping/Shepherd's Hut' in the Cotswolds next week to see VW's birthplace and visit the church where his father was vicar.

Hopefully the book will arrive before you depart, Jeffrey. In case it doesn't - since 2001 a display at the church of a series of five boards "on which his life related and his musical output charted".
Have a great trip and fully report back on your return.
