The crux of matters

We are now seeking funding to complete the rescue of what we think is an important and sensitive part of the historic fabric of our village.

The Road t Little Dribbling

The author Bill Bryson, writing about the rescue of historic structures in modern Britain, refers to what he calls “the crux of matters”. He says “If you have a lot of good old stuff and you want to keep it, you have to pay for it. If you don’t pay for it, you can’t keep it.” Saron graveyard may not be as well known as the Ribblehead Viaduct but it is surely also worth saving.

About davidjcollier

Originally from South Wales I have lived in Nottinghamshire for over forty years. I am married and have three grown up children and two grandchildren. Having worked in education for 43 years I will retire in July 2012. My interests include history (general, local and family), rugby union, swimming, photography, bird watching and gardening. For the benefit of anyone who may actually read this (extremely unlikely, I admit) please do not confuse 'interests' with knowledge or skill. My involvement in a community project which aims to rescue a graveyard from the effects of almost 30 years of neglect. also keeps me quite busy. View all posts by davidjcollier
