Welcome to the latest edition of the James Clarke & Co and The Lutterworth Press newsletter!

The newly revised and enlarged edition of The Guide to Norfolk Churches By D.P. Mortlock and C.V. Roberts is available now. We are also pleased to announce our acquisition of Parish Churches of Greater London: A Guide by Michael Hodges, which celebrates the architectural variety and historic interest to be found in over 400 Anglican and Roman Catholic churches, and features over 1000 photographs by the author.

Sophie Neville, author of The Making of Swallows and Amazons (1974), will be participating in a Marathon reading of  ‘Swallows and Amazons’ at Coniston Boating Centre in the Lake District on the 3rd September. Organised as part of Visit England’s ‘Year of Literary Heroes’, this free event also commemorates the 50th anniversary of Arthur Ransome’s death.
