New Book on North Nottinghamshire’s Unique Christian Heritage

As part of the work to attract tourists to our area and also to make local people more aware of their local heritage, Adrian Gray has published a new book in partnership with Bookworm of Retford. The book explains how people from North Notts (here including Mansfield, Worksop, Retford and surrounding villages) together with those from West Lincolnshire have played a hugely significant role in the development of Christianity worldwide, especially between 1500 and the present day. The book gives a short historical summary of the story, and then provides a guide as to what happened in many specific places across our region. Fully illustrated, it covers everything from Protestant martyrs to Quakers and some significant missionaries from the last 200 years. Available from usual bookshops, online retailers or direct from Bookworm in Retford.
