Papers which once belonged to Montague Hardwick Knott (1906 - 2006), Vicar of Blackmore from 1957 to 1985, have been given to me by a reader of the blog and accompanying website. The archive includes a sequence of Christmas letters and collected information on the history of the Priory Church of St Laurence, Blackmore which, by coincidence, celebrates its 900th anniversary this year (2014).
Over the coming months a wide selection of items will be transcribed and posted onto this site.
However, there is a puzzle to solve. The box contains five postcards of the same church. But the whereabouts are completely unknown. Could it be in Essex, or even Lincolnshire or the Cotswolds? Can you help?
