This could be just the opportunity to add that missing volume. If you’re looking for inspiration for places to visit, then Stephen Hart’s modest booklet is a bargain. East Anglian Round Tower Churches, which lists all the RT churches with OS (Ordnance Survey) references, costs £3.
Another former member, Jack Sterry, who was a great benefactor to the Society, wrote three books with detailed day tours. All are no longer available in bookshops.
Each volume – Churches on the Norfolk and Suffolk Borders; Churches to the West, East and South of Norwich and finally Churches in Mid-Norfolk, North Suffolk and Suffolk – cost £7 each. Again this price includes postage. If you want all three, then send a cheque or bank payment for £21.
Finally, no kitchen would be complete without the Round Tower Churches Society’s tea towel. The Norfolk towel features All Saints, Keswick; Forncett St Peter; St Mary Beachamwell; St Andrew, Quidenham and St Margaret, Hales. This costs £5, again postage paid.
Please send your order with cheque payable to The Round Tower Churches Society to: Stuart Bowell, 2 Hall Road, Stowmarket, Suffolk IP 14 1TN. Alternatively, email Stuart firstname.lastname@example.org and pay direct into the society’s bank – Sort Code 53 81 16 Account 04331915. You must include a reference, ie your name, Books, please.
The pre-Christmas offer generated £200 of sales including the last dozen copies of Stephen Hart’s 2003 definitive book. The Round Tower Churches of England.
