The Curate’s Notebook (handed to Revd. David in September by a woman who didn’t leave her name) has now been passed to an expert in the conservation of historic documents. The work to be done is delicate and will take many months. In due course, the book will be available for reading /viewing. The possibility has been discussed of digitising the information so that it will be accessible to all.

Though this is the original book, a copy in full exists in the Winchester  Records Office. So someone in the past had copied the entire book out by hand.   How intriguing.
