About the speaker...
Ian is a writer, historian and public speaker. From an early age he became captivated by the intrigues and history of England’s colourful past, and as well as having specialist knowledge of crime and punishment from times past he is a published author on historical and crime subjects and has made many appearances on radio in that context. These include articles for BBC Sheffield, BBC Lincolnshire, BBC Nottingham and BBC Derby and many more. As well as giving guided walks around historical locations he also spends much of his time travelling the country giving illustrated talks and lectures to groups. Ian also gives his time to English Heritage to act as a guide at a number of their properties, primarily Bolsover Castle in Derbyshire. His writing goes from strength to strength and he has now quite a following. He is married to Angela and together they have three children. They currently live close to the Nottinghamshire-Derbyshire border surrounded by its many parks and stately homes.
