Since taking premature retirement from Networkrail in 2014 I have been researching astronomical history mainly in my native Suffolk.
In 2017 and 2019 I was awarded the Society for the History of Astronomy Roger Jones Award for contributions to their County Survey of Astronomers.
I‘ve recently had two papers published, one in our Journal and the other in the SHA’s Antiquarian Astronomer
In January 2020 I was appointed Deputy Director of the Historical Section.

Local society membership: Darsham & Surrounding Hamlets Astronomical Society, Orwell Astronomical Society (Ipswich), and Society for the History of Astronomy.
