Rev Lucas Book

 

The Rev Lucas was Rector of Campsea Ashe from 1906 to 1915. He was author of a remarkable book "Notes on Campsea Ashe", the original of which is still in existance. It was written in his own handwriting and contained many photographs. As well as providing a unique insight into life in the village in the early 20th century, Lucas also wrote a personal diary of The Great War and this was included as part of his history. The first section, 1914 - 15 was written whilst he was living at Campsea Ashe, the second, 1915 - 20, after he had retired away from the village.

The original book has been professionally restored by a local book conservator as it was in a poor condition. 

A transcript is also available - scoll down to locate the links to this.
