REV PETER WALKDEN DIARY from 1733 to 1734 (514 pages, hardback) £20.00 plus postage

This previously unpublished diary was written by a chapel minister who lived in the hill country near Chipping, 10 miles north east of Preston Lancashire. It reveals details of his ministry, his farming, his family and his social life in the area. Journeys are described to many parts of Lancashire and into the Yorkshire Dales. The Diary also includes notes from newspapers and books, thus giving the reader remarkable glimpses of the early 18th century elsewhere in the British Isles and in parts of Europe, Africa and America.
