A tribute to the life and work of Brian Torode
Welcome to our site celebrating the life and work of Brian Torode, a man who was much loved, and is greatly missed, following his unexpected short illness and subsequent death in 2014.
We aim to bring you a flavour of his love of people, local communities and local history relating to Cheltenham and surrounding Gloucestershire, England, by publishing his writings and images, and by inviting those who knew him to contribute to the site.
This site also features essays, notes and research by Richard Barton. In 1985 Brian and Richard were instrumental in setting up the Gloucestershire and North Avon Catholic History Society and, between them, they contributed many articles to the Journals. Brian was the editor of the Journal for some years.Whilst these publications may be perused in the Gloucestershire Archives the articles written by Brian and Richard are now available on this blogsite.
