Before becoming the Assistant Bishop of Llandaff, David Wilbourne was vicar of Helmsley, a market town nestling on the southern slopes of the North York Moors. For twelve years he wrote a regular diary column in the Church Times, delighting its readers with his quirky tales of ministry in Helmsley. The Helmsley Chronicles collects the best of David s diaries, substantially edited and bolstered with new material. Gently celebrating rural and church life, it is a wonderful foil to all the uncertainties and insecurities of the modern world and church in a style both humorous and poignant that will delight readers of Yorkshire diarists such as James Herriot and Gervase Phinn.
