25th Anniversary Service

All Saints Church, Lamport.


The BB Society held a special service at All Saints Church in Lamport (where BB’s father was Rector in the 1920s), on the 8th September 2015 to mark the 25th anniversary of BB’s death.

The service was led by Society member Reverend Tom Gladwin supported by resident Reverend Canon Mary Garbutt and featured readings by BB Society members from BB's published works including extracts from BB’s autobiography A Child Alone.

The BB Society is now in its 15th year, so it was a double celebration.


After the service lunch was served at Lamport Hall opposite the Rectory where BB grew up.


This was a memorable and enjoyable occasion and allowed us to remember and celebrate the life and legacy of a great countryman, writer, artist and conservationist who implored us all to ‘Look ye also while life lasts’.
