Roger's Musings

This site holds the companion website pages and resources pages for Roger's various musings, publications etc. Resources are primarily items that either do not fit easily into the printed page (such as an interactive map), or that can usefully amplify a point made in the books, or where higher resolution versions of  some of the images that are used in the books can be reproduced.

It also acts as a hub and as a means to collate in one place a multitude of bits and pieces. Well, it will eventually do that but at the moment it is limited to published or soon to be published work. 

Much has already been written about Widecombe, but there is always more to tell (!), if the reader can bear it.

My aim has always been to inform the reader about the place where I live and that I love in ways that perhaps have not been told before or not quite in the same way. Hopefully you will get a feel for Widecombe and its hidden treasures by looking at these resources pages and, who knows, you may even be tempted to buy a copy of one of the books.
