    I love that you’re researching into the history of your plot and getting to know it better. I’ve done the same with the plot I garden between the flats here in N London, I found the social history that it ties into completely fascinating. I also love a good snoop in the archives – the moment when you discover something of relevance is so rewarding. When doing picture research for a book based in Bermondsey, where my gran’s family lived, I went way beyond my remit because it brought my family’s history alive. Utterly absorbing and brilliant. Looking forward to further revelations about your plot!

      Thanks Caro, yes absorbing is the word. It’s been an amazing process so far and I need to get back to digging around to find out more about the people I’ve come across. Your research sounds fascinating.
