The Apley Legion – paperback just out

Graham Jones bookLocal historian Graham Jones has recently published a book called The Apley Legion – a parade of servicemen from a Shropshire Estate, containing stories of “how labourers, tradesmen & the gentry banded together, put on uniform & served in almost every campaign of the twentieth century”. Available on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/The-Apley-Legion-Servicemen-Shropshire/dp/178132137X

Apley Holiday Cottages have some early Spring days free for anyone wanting to get into the heart of the countryside to enjoy this beautiful Spring weather. I’ll tell you more tomorrow.

Also, farewell to wonderful Apley Estate plumber Roy Higgins who died very recently. I’ll write about him tomorrow – he made me laugh outloud when I went to interview him, listening to his humorous stories of his time working at Apley.

I’ve run out of time now, so I’ll write more tomorrow on the above.
