A MAN who enjoyed years of adventures in France with his late wife has published her journal in her memory.

Michael Clark, who has lived in Trowbridge for the past 22 years has published the book, A Miscellany of Writings which he describes as a reflection on a long life, a love of history and a passion for France.

He said: "For some 35 years, my wife, Margaret, and I travelled extensively in France and Margaret maintained a detailed daily record.

"Sadly, Margaret died in November 2017, but it had been her wish and hope that I should complete and publish a narrative.

"However, I was anxious to fulfil Margaret’s wishes and to produce a book in her memory.

"My diagnosis of prostate cancer gave me an increased impetus and now, in my ninetieth year, I am pleased to have been able to produce and publish a book."

Mr Clark lived in Camerton, near Bath before moving to Trowbridge.

His professional life has been in the field of taxation, working as an independent accountant since the early 1970s.

For many years he was also an organist and choirmaster and a piano teacher.

For 27 years he was a member of Camerton Parish Council, serving as Chairman for six years.
