I've been working since 2010 with volunteers across Leicestershire to research and publish parish histories in the Victoria County History of Leicestershire series. As each history covers many topics (landscape, settlement, buildings, transport and communications, landownership, economic history, social history, schools, charities, religious history, local government, etc.) and a full chronology from the earliest settlement to the present day, this provides endless variety. It also sends me on fascinating explorations of e.g. medieval church decoration, the changing contents of mercers' shops in the 17th century, and political debates about public expenditure on water and sewerage in the 19th century. When I'm not pursuing local history interests, you might find me (when lockdown restrictions on indoor gatherings are lifted) in a church tower, with other bellringers.
