Success at Warden Abbey Vineyard Open Day

Eventispress author Margaret Roberts talked and signed copies of her book  ‘The Original Warden Pear’  at the Warden Abbey Vineyard Open Day on Sunday 10th September 2017.

Brian Kerr also enjoyed success selling copies of ‘An Unassuming County’ at an Eventispress stall which displayed our publications highlighting our work in Bedfordshire.

I’m sure that a great day was had by all, as local producers sold their wares, alongside Warden Abbey Wines.  Well done Margaret and Brian!

THE ORIGINAL WARDEN PEAR by Margaret Roberts

Great news!

The Original Warden Pear by Margaret Roberts has now been released for sale in the UK on Amazon. All profits for this book will go to The Warden Abbey Vineyard ~ A community wine grower.

About the book:

“Having enjoyed widespread popularity until the late seventeenth century, the warden pear gradually faded into obscurity. The Original Warden Pear uncovers its story, bringing together evidence from monks, horticulturalists, physicians and bookkeepers. Poets, songwriters and playwrights captured the spirit of the pear from the late fourteenth century onwards, while twenty-first century DNA testing has sought to discover whether anything of the old warden pears has survived. The Original Warden Pear will appeal to those interested in horticulture, the arts, theology, Bedfordshire local history and medieval medicine. Recipes are included, so that readers can recreate the sorts of pear dishes enjoyed by the fifteenth-century nobility, or bake one of the famous Warden Pies. All profits from the book will go towards the upkeep of Warden Abbey Vineyard, a Bedfordshire Rural Communities Charity project.”
