We are familiar with: "Remember, remember the fifth of November. Gunpowder, treason and plot."
Most people believe Guy Fawkes to be the brains behind it but he was just a hired hand. It was a complex plot brought about by the history of the previous century.
I became fascinated by it when researching an item brought into my antique shop and I looked deeper and deeper into the causes and events of this amazing episode of English history.Views: 542 | Enquiries: 3
After 23 years flying in the RAF as a navigator I found myself running a training company for airline pilots after doing a favour for a friend.
My wife has a lavender business (I am the tractor driver) and when she opened a shop which was too large for her sole use I closed my training company and took the spare half of the shop to indulge my passion for selling antiques. My wife and I give talks on the history of lavender, growing lavender and how it is used (see Lavender and Co) and this, together with being a trustee of our small but beautiful local museum and a love of antiques and history, has resulted in me giving number of talks on a variety of historical subjects.
The RAF trained me to instruct and I just love presenting the subjects I care so much about.
