987 – Wareham

I read the article in Dorset Life about Wareham. It was of course very interesting and I knew some of it (Saxon town, major port before Poole, sacked by the Dane’s, besieged, extensively destroyed by fire), interesting key points in the towns history. But there is so much more detail to be disc overed.

The article is based on a book; A portrait of Dorset by Rena Gardiner. Of course, I went to have a look to see if I could get a copy. Well, I could get a copy of the book, but at a price £75. It appears that the book has been published twice, with very limited print runs in each case (750 copies), so I’m not going to bother with that one.

The next article featured another book; Real Dorset by Jon Woolcott, this also looked quite interesting and is available for a much more reasonable price so a copy is winging its way toward me as we speak.

The good thing about my interest, which I’ve called Locality comes with me. I am very much looking forward to applying it in Dorset, and I think I need to start planning how I am going to approach this and what is involved. I need to think about that.

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.
