A few months ago, I was contacted by some of the children at Sandylands primary school. They were looking into a case (from around Garrow’s period) of two children who were found guilty of stealing and transported to Australia.
They came up to London with their teacher and we spent a very enjoyable morning together in Lincoln’s Inn. The children asked me some questions about the period and the interview is online on their site.
The site is a really fun thing to have a look at. What I enjoyed was their re-creation of the trial of young George and Elizabeth. In addition to all of the actors, they have absolutely fantastic and creative wigs! Anyway, I think all of the work on the project is fantastic and everyone who took part in it – in front of the camera and behind the scenes – deserves warm congratulations.
Well done Sandylands!

I have a piece about Garrow in The Times today with lots of fun facts.
In it, I mention the fact that Garrow’s former homes don’t have Blue Plaques. But, amazingly, I have just found out that Garrow’s former home in Kent is being given its recognition in a ceremony at the end of the month!
Thanks very much to Bryan Gibson of the Garrow Society for sharing this information:
And well done to everyone involved in putting the plaque up there!
