Congratulations Ian! This is great news. I have just ordered a copy online direct from Kingsclear Books –http://kingsclearbooks.com.au/camden.html

Don’t forget to advise non-local readers that they can do that too.

Best wishes, Katherine

A comment from Laura Egan-Burt a resident of Menangle NSW  After Sharing a post from Camden History Notes

I spent some of yesterday with the author of this Blog, Historian Dr Ian Willis. His knowledge of local history is amazing. We had an interesting discussion about the importance of Menangle as an Arts and Crafts village, which is something I have always suspected but have never had confirmed before. Have a Happy Sunday! Laura.
