Is horror dead? Austen Jenkins doesn't think so. As an executive with the fledgeling, low-rent IBS network, he conceives the idea of a reality show in which a family is placed in a haunted location,... More > with the electronic eyes of the cameras rolling 24/7.
What he doesn't know -or care about- is that the stories about his location- the abandoned mining camp of Essex- are all too real: stories of murder, and cannibalism, and depravity beyond words.
When a troubled family is placed there, the uneasy spirits that have never really grown silent spring to life in a bloody, terrifying spectacle for all to see.
Is horror dead? Not here. Not in the abandoned mining camp of Essex.< Less
Welcome to Essex and a booklet that gives a selection of sundials from throughout the county. Many sundials are located on churches but some are in other locations such as in town squares or even in... More > the middle of a roundabout.

Included with the vertical dials are those that are direct (usually facing due south) and declining (usually facing either east or west of south) and unusually two are made from stained glass. There is a large sundial age range from the scratch dials, vertical dials almost 350 years old to more modern sundials made in the last few years.< Less
The Earl of Essex by Henry Jones.
This tragedy was dedicated to the Earl of Chesterfield, who was the author's patron, and who, it is supposed, assisted him in the composition of the work.
There... More > are two tragedies under the title of "The Earl of Essex;" but the following, by Henry Jones, brought upon the stage in 1753, was most favourably received, and became very attractive.
The dramatist, who founds his plot and incidents on history, generally adds, from his invention, those scenes, which best describe the power of love. Here it has been otherwise, at least in the character of the queen; whom every distinguished historian has portrayed as more enamoured of her favourite Essex, than even this play will exhibit.
The character of Essex is sustained with greater accuracy: the fiery quality of his temper; his alternate pride and humility, daring and servility, in presence of his royal mistress; with all his boisterous vows of loyalty to her; and tender oaths of love to another.< Less
In this highly original report, Jonathan Essex points out the little appreciated importance of restricting development of the built environment as an essential component of any true sustainability. ... More > Construction produces huge emissions and other ecological damage in itself. But it also literally builds greater consumption into our lifestyles; bigger houses mean both more and bigger televisions for example. Improving the efficiency of appliances is almost irrelevant faced with this pressure for expansion. Essex's report in particular challenges green champions of greater infrastructure expenditure to think again.< Less

Hawksbury, a magnificent country mansion set in 3,000 acres of British countryside. Bequeathed by Lord Kingsbury in 1947 with one proviso - that it must become and remain, a hospital. 53 Years on,... More > Hawksbury is a major hospital, and a centre of excellence for many medical fields.
