Rural History Research

Having worked both in and for the countryside for most of my life, I’ve amassed a great deal of knowledge on landscape, wildlife and farming and would be keen to continue to put that knowledge to any good cause.  Please contact me if you consider I can be of assistance in writing or researching for you or your cause.

Monty’s Blog

Click on the Monty’s Blog button above and visit my blog…  It contains a wealth of information on a diverse range of subject areas, mainly with an environmental flavour (but also containing cultural, humanitarian, politics etc) and also my own more notable sightings, and opinions.  Since early-2017, I have included a wider field of subject matter…

You can also delve by either Recent Posts (entries) or Archives (by month/year) or Categories (by subject).

What I Can Offer:

Local and Rural History Research. 

I may well be able to help you in this respect. Each enquiry if taken on, would be individually tailored to the request of the client.

Illustrated Talks. 

For many years I often presented illustrated talks on various subjects. I have now ceased on this line of work but do try me and see if I might be available…
