Natures DomainMurphy's Lore by George Murphy

Murphy's Lore is George Murphy's weekly record of a dramatic year in the life of the UK. 52 episodes, viewed from Hebden Bridge in the Upper Calder Valley, a distinctive, beautiful and climate challenged part of the Pennine hills.

George's writings are filled with offbeat, wry observations on national politics, his family life and, above all, the quirky community of Hebden Bridge and its neighbouring towns.

George is a performance storyteller and writer of light verse and songs. This is his third book for adults, he is the author of six books of folk tales for African children and in 2018 published Hippy Valley.

Murphy's Lore was first published as a regular column on the Hebden Bridge website, the 'HebWeb' .
