2020 PUBLICATION

This year’s publication, the catalogue of London Parish Maps, is quite heavy.

To save on postage many members, especially in London, are having their copies hand-delivered by volunteers so they may not receive them until September.

If you have not received your copy by the beginning of October, please contact the Publications Secretary, Simon Morris
