his retirement, Ron did much research into Tickhill's history,
especially the Middle Ages. In the acknowledgements to Tom
Beastall's book Tickhill: Portrait of an English Country Town,
Tom wrote that Ron's knowledge of Tickhill's topography and
Mediaeval background had no equal.

the Society in the autumn of 2007. Then aged 92 he recorded his
memories of Tickhill especially his schooldays in the 1920s
which he remembers clearly and in remarkable detail. He also
talks about Tickhill's Gas Works.
