2004 ‘Corals, cuttle-fish and crowbars: Philip Henry Gosse at Weymouth’; Dorset Life, 2004

In Dorset Life 308, November 2004, pp18-23: this was written partly to publicise my novel Seaside Pleasures - Gosse and his wife Emily are important players in the Victorian part of the modern story - but also because I became, and still am, obsessed with Gosse and the conflicts between his work and his family and his beliefs.

'Dredging at Weymouth Bay': from PH Gosse's 'A Natrualist's Rambles on the Devonshire Coast', 1853
