973 – Dorset by H.O.Lock

Towards the beginning of April we were in Chichester for the day. As usual, my focus of interest were Waterstones and Kim’s. Kim’s is a second hand bookshop. It’s a really nice place over four floors it is absolutely a brilliant place.

I’d spent a good bit of time having a browse around. I done the science fiction, transport, astronomy and writing sections and was about to leave the shop and just by the counter is the section dealing with the counties of England. I found a book entitled Dorset by H.O.Lock. Turns out that Mr. Lock was a Major in the British Army. I haven’t been able to find out anything more about him.

I picked the book up and read a random page from near the front of the book. I really liked the style off Lock’s writing. I don’t know if he was from Dorset, but he wrote very respectfully. Of course, I bought the book and am now reading it. It’s a very nice read.

I’m making the odd note. One thing I found was the Dorset Natural History & Antiquarian Field Club there are references to the club on the net, and copies of clubs records can be bought for £7. I might buy one.

That led me to a huge range of resources at the Dorchester museum,, and then I found a website Tess of the Vale. Now, here is a lady who clearly loves the county. I shall spend some time exploring this website (surprised nothing on YouTube. She is on Twitter.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
