In this history of St. George’s Church at Littleport, author and local historian Roger Rudderham delves deep into the archives to tell the story of the church’s development and evolution at the heart of Littleport.
The book includes the highs (and lows) of those who inhabit the vicarage – including Rev. Frederick Eagle Hopkins, the drunk and disorderly Rev. George Peacock, the unpopular and pistol toting Rev. John Vachell, and the hugely popular Rev. William Bonner Hopkins.
Information is also included about the church bells, clocks, stained glass windows, and burial grounds.
Foreword comes from Rev. Rosemary Maskell, one of the long line of vicars at St. George’s Church, with a postscript from her predecessor, Rev. Canon Allan Viller, vicar from 1992-2004.
