From the Past

One of my projects while I am “locked down” is to share on this website stories and illustrations from The Church Monthly dating back to 1892 owned by St Andrew’s Church, Aysgarth, and those from the Heritage Event held at that church in 2009.

Last year for the Research Room at the Dales Countryside Museum I helped with scanning all the Aysgarth Parish Magazines and then the Upper Wensleydale Parish Magazines which had been published in The Church Monthly annuals. So I was often distracted by items in The Church Monthly magazines. I thought I would now have time to indulge myself!
