In this section I will be adding documents that may make the story of the Cottage clearer to you.
The first one is what I sent to the Blake Society and the Blake Cottage Trust when I realised that the Chair had elbowed people out in Felpham, kept the Blake Society in the dark about the campaign, then formed his own Trust, and that the Blake Society had washed its hands off the problem. No one has addressed yet any of the issues I raise in this document.
1. A Vision for Blake’s Cottage
These are articles that I wrote for our blog during the Cottage appeal:

Finally, if you are curious about other things I have written about Blake, you can visit the section “You Become What You Behold” in my personal blog:
