    I have a copy of “ Ford End the story of an Essex village” 1968.
    Would like to send it to the local vicar. Could you give me the name and address. Thanks.
    We inherited this little book and thought it too important not to pass on.

      That’s very kind of you. I have the same little book, as well as the earlier first edition, written 10 years earlier. It’s interesting comparing the two.
      We are currently interregnum awaiting a new vicar, but I’ll find out if the church warden would like a copy for the church. I’ll try to contact you by email with their name and address, if that’s ok.
      Kind regards,
      Chris (Admin)
