It features well-known people such as St Guthlac of Crowland or St Hugh of Lincoln, the American puritan leader John Cotton from Boston, and the origins of the Baptist denomination in Gainsborough.

I am a Cambridge-educated historian with around 25 published books on a variety of historical topics which you can see on my Amazon author page at: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Adrian-Gray/e/B0034P9K2M/ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_1?qid=1529568674&sr=1-1
I specialise in the counties of Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire, but I also speak on a number of national issues such as Victorian crime and social history, the history of religious freedom, and the history of education and government inspection (which is a lot more interesting than it sounds!). I am one of the leaders of local community efforts to develop Christian heritage for tourism in Notts and Lincs, leading up to 'Mayflower 400' but also including the many other ways in which people from the region have helped to change the world.
I provide a range of lively and fully-illustrated talks that can be tailored for local needs. You can email me for a full list of talks. I am a skilled presenter having worked as a teacher for many years and also as a tour guide in my home area.
