Came across your book quite by accident. What a wonderful trip down memory lane and also the added bonus of a free print which means my father's Xmas present is sorted! As he is Repton born and bred so a BIG Thank You!

The two pictures of Chigwell Row arrived in good time. Thank you for getting things organised.

I must apologize for the lateness of response but have only just finished reading said book which I found most informative. The quality of the photographs seems better than previous and the layout of the pages led seamlessly from one to another. All in all a thoroughly good read which leads me to quote some previous author who said, “the book to read is not the one that thinks for you but the one that makes you think.” Your books certainly make you think.

Re: 2 Calendars you prepared for me containing pictures of Old Slapton, Dartmouth & Beesands in South Devon which I sent to two friends who live in Dartmouth. This is just to relay their great admiration and appreciation for their gifts. They were overwhelmed to see pictures of their childhood village, Slapton and to have a different one every month next year will bring back many happy memories. So, you see, not every email you get on this screen is a complaint. Well done and thank you for offering this item. I got a Calendar for my parents last year with old pictures of Stanwell, Middlesex, where they were both born and they, too, were really happy and still haven't thrown it away. They just moved it to another place in the kitchen to make way for this year's 'ordinary' calendar. They are 84 and 85 years old.

Many thanks for making five people (including me!) very happy.
