Thank you so much everyone. It didn’t occur to me to bring my own gloves so I will do
that. I plan to be there right at opening time to make the most of the day, and hopefully
at least a few of the call numbers I find will be relevant!
The parish church listing is particularly helpful Marge, thank you again.
Looking forward to the visit—only wish I had more time!
