Medieval Parish Churches of Wales is now nearly complete. However Mike could still do with a few extra pictures from Anglesey, Lleyn Peninsula and Anglesey and would be pleased to hear from anyone who could help provide any.

2015  saw the release of three new titles: MEDIEVAL NUNNERIES, MEDIEVAL BRIDGES and SAXON CHURCHES.  New for 2016 was THE CASTLES  OF  KENT, SURREY AND SUSSEX. This replaces the existing titles for castles in those counties, Kent having been out of print now for more than a year, and Surrey badly in need of updating in the light of recent developments at Betchworth and Guildford. A new third edition of CASTLES AND MOATED MANSIONS  OF  SHROPSHIRE is also now available. Both titles contain quite a lot of colour pictures.

The county guides to Old Parish Churches series has stalled lately due to poor sales of the last four:  Lancashire, Gloucestershire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire. Interest from shops for these titles recently has been minimal. If any more titles in the series do come out the most likely candidates are North Yorkshire and Avon for which a fair bit of the fieldwork has been done, although there has been no recent progress on either of them. A further complication is that the pictures would need to be grouped together in pages filled with photos if reproduced in colour, for economic reasons.
