JOHN PRICE -
This page lists a series of sites which I have
created. I would greatly appreciate any
Hill (born May 1928 – 1986) was a writer, broadcaster and photographer who
came from the English Black Country, a region which provided the central
theme for his work. This website presents a
collection of material by and about Hill covering fiction, non-fiction,
broadcasting, dramatisations and photo-journalism.
GUILD OF ST JOSEPH AND ST DOMINIC
This site sets out the story of a group of talented artists and craftsmen who establish a community in 1920, with the motto 'Men rich in virtue studying
beautifulness living in peace in their houses'. The Guild, which was based on religious principles and sought to recreate an idealised medieval lifestyle, survived until 1989.
Site about an underappreciated artist from Dudley.
EIGHTEENTH CENTURY CRICKET
A site I have just begun which will explore the history of cricket prior to 1800.
THE ST KENELM'S WALKS
guide to two long distance walks across Worcestershire and Gloucestershire,
linking the two places most connected with the life of the ninth century
Mercian Saint. Details provided include interactive maps and a history of the Kenelm legend.
THE ESCAPE OF KING CHARLES II
Resources connected with The Monarch's Way, a
625 mile walk based on the escape of King Charles II after the battle
of Worcester, 1651.
INTEGRATED NETWORK OF SOUTHERN ENGLISH PATHS
In his famous book about
the Pilgrim Road to Canterbury,
Old Road, Hilaire Belloc made the observation that the topography of
Central Southern England is dominated by six ranges of hills, all of
which, more or less, emanate from the Salisbury Plain. This 1,325 mile
network of walking routes follows those ridges, and the River Thames,
all of the way to the sea. In a sense, it is the motorway
network of Ancient Britain.
