Bernard Ellis Musical Intruments - Bernard specialised in making early string instruments from his workshop in Wigmore. The instruments were either copies of originals or researched and based on historical sources.  His widow, Megan has kindly allowed us to reproduce this document which is a wonderful resource for students, musicians and anyone interested in early string instruments: please download this PDF.  Thank you so much to Keith at sprout.uk.com  for putting the document together for us.

We recently excavated a Victorian hypocaust heating system that was installed around the time of Bodley's restorations in the 1860's.  Frank Ferris from Hevac-Heritage has written up a very interesting report  that includes some photos and a camera of the ducting - here is the link and thank you Frank.   http://www.hevac-heritage.org/items_of_interest/heating/churches_&_chapels/wigmore_church/wigmore_church.htm
