Ian Foster

A former London detective, Ian fell in love with this region when he retired to live in it after a thirty-year career in the police. An English graduate, he then worked for a number of years as a teacher in the region.

His great passion is for the region’s  history, from the Romans right through to the present day; and for its literary heritage, Shakespeare, Housman, Edward Thomas, CS Lewis,Tolkein and others. He loves sharing with others his love of the area and the characters who lived in it and helping them come to love it just as much as he does.
