About Us

Sharing is caring!

I’m Tony Hadland, a writer and historian based in Oxfordshire, England. This blog is the successor to my original website, Hadland.net, established at the start of 1998. It principally covers aspects of bicycle history and technology, recusancy in the Thames Valley, my talks and books, and the exploits of my Victorian great-great-uncle, the explorer and spy Captain William Gill of the Royal Engineers.
