About the Book
There are certain places in England, slightly off the beaten-track perhaps, but which are living monuments to our historical roots. At the heart of this great country, where the three ancient counties of Warwickshire, Northamptonshire and Oxfordshire meet, is one such place.
The village and Manor of Wormleighton has been settled for well over a thousand years, with a centre of worship at its heart for at least as long. Like the old oak chest which still lies close by the South Door, The Church of St Peter is guardian of the secrets and stories of the people who once worked and ruled this land.
Step inside and discover a hidden history of England, where the sheep still safely graze..

She took great pleasure in designing and editing 'Where Sheep Safely Graze' but apologises to her Dad for taking so long to complete it to his exacting standards!
