About Peter Covey-Crump

I am a retired Civil Servant living in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. My historical talks are based on research into family history and are illustrated with original documents. I am a keen photographer and this has inspired my travel talks.

I am prepared to visit group within 50 miles of Cheltenham (once this is possible). Meanwhile I can give talks anywhere on Zoom.
