The local Catholic school was founded by refugees from the French Revolution. I am interested in this. No-one else is.

While the rest of the country has proper snow, Camden has clearly cut back to just A Lot Of Cold. It's so so cold I've given up trying to heat the flat and am just wandering around in ski thermals. The cat has shut down completely. It may have died. Although something is still eating the cat biscuits.

How did you discover this interesting historical fact - accidentally, or do you always research the origins of churches in your area?

They popped a leaflet about the church school through the door. They're planning on allowing local Catholic boys to go there. Which seems sensible - apparently mothers have to produce daughters or send their bairns to Islington.

I'm interested. My family were running amok during the revolution but I can't see them founding a Catholic school, a pub maybe.
