    I am very interested. I was born and spent the first thirteen years of my life at the croft of Timberford, of which my uncle Charlie Shearer was tenant in the time of Sir Thomas Birkett, over the hill from where Graham lives at Backside of Beldorney. I have many photos of the Chapelhill, taken within the recent digital camera era. I think Graham visited with pendrives and copied the best of them.

    I have one copy of the Book of Glass, by Godsman, not entirely accurate, as he was not a Glass person, but a man who wrote similar books about other North East parishes, knew how to find the recorded stuff, but not the personal knowledge.

    Thank you, Graham!
    I’ll have a look at the foreword too.
    Best wishes,

    Hi Annie

    Thanks for your comment.

    Yes I can confirm the existence of such a book. Although sadly I don’t have it, I do know people who have copies which are proudly cared for.
    I’ll ask one of the folks I know to get in touch with you.

    Meantime you can read an exert from the foreword to the book in the
    “About” section of our website.

    Kind regards

    Greetings from Orb’s Bookshop, Huntly.
    I would like to know if there’s any truth in the rumour that a book exists, called Glimpses of Glass.
    Grateful for any advice,
    Annie Lamb
