The Haslemere Society & the Peasants

A big thanks to everyone who came to the AGM last night and listened to my talk, and to the Haslemere Society for asking me there.  It was great to get some locals enthusing about our important Peasant Arts heritage.

I got plenty of new leads and information on Hill Farm, Wildwood, Little St Cross, St Christophers Church and the Dolmetsches, so watch this space!

A pensive pre-talk me...some people did turn up, honest!


  1. I`m so sorry we missed your talk but pleased that it went well. It will be good to hear more about the Peasant Places of Haslemere. Especially Little St Cross......

  2. Thanks! There were at least 100 people there, so I had company. It was great to spread the word about the Peasant Arts movement on their old 'home territory'.

    I was reminded of Godfrey Blount giving his magic lantern talks in Haslemere around 100 years ago, I wonder what he would have thought of my talk...I didn't hand paint a single slide!
