Steve Scruton currently on BBC Essex

You all know, by now, that I love radio in all its forms - national, regional,local and hospital radio and have broadcast from at least eight different studios in London and the South East.  Mainly I talk about social history linked to museums in the county. Research is vital in my work and the results over twenty years, have been published in at least ten books and seven anthologies. One of my latest titles has been read by former Barking & Dagenham folk who now live all over the world. Available on Amazon and in most bookshops such as W H Smith, Waterstones and particularly Upminster-based  Swan Bookshop.
