QuotationI am reading the life of an anchorite in Devon, or rather Somerset I think, St. Wulfric of Haselbury. It is written by John of Ford (Cistercian abbey). You must know that area rather well, though it is perhaps a bit far south for you. Could you possibly lend me an ordnance map of that bit of Devon and Somerset? Around Haselbury, Crewkerne, and wherever Ford Abbey is. It is all within fifty miles of Exeter. I just want to borrow the map and get my bearings. I may do a couple of articles on this.
