Big Drips from Bath & Wells
Big Drips from Bath & Wells
  • Description

Written especially for children, a bright and lively collection of short stories highlights some of the key figures and events in the history of Christianity in Somerset, each illustrated by humorous line drawings penned by Jennie Reed. Find out about the temptation of St Dunstan by the devil; schooldays at Barlynch Priory in the early sixteenth century and the discovery of the Alfred Jewel and its links with Somerset. Here you can learn about the part played by Bishop Thomas Ken during the Monmouth Rebellion and just how bishops lived and feasted during the fifteenth century. Read about Hannah More and how she established schools on Sundays in North Somerset and how the Vicar of Meare was attacked by a ‘girt’ dog. Remember Bishop JimThompson’s ‘Thoughts for the Day’ and read a story by our current bishop, Peter Price.

Besides these and other stories, there is a simple explanation of what a diocese is and how the Diocese of Bath and Wells came into being. Big Drips from Bath andWells tells a serious tale but in a witty and lively way, designed to appeal to all ages.

Hilary Binding is a local historian, writer, former teacher and a licensed reader. She has worked with children on behalf of the National Trust, the Somerset Record Office and the Exmoor National Park Authority.

Jennie Reed was born in St Albans, Herts in 1985 and moved to Somerset in 1986. This is her first book.
