Who do you think you are?

Who'd have thunk it eh? No sooner does St Johns Church blog appear on the scene than he's touting celebrities on it!?!? Tipped off by The Parkerilla I made sure to watch Who Do You Think You Are last night featuring Kevin Whately, aka Lewis of Inspector Morse fame (that's him on the left) and Kevin Scott, vicar of St johns (that's him on the right). Not only does it turn out that one of Kevin Whately's ancestors is buried in St Johns graveyard but a family member actually owned Nonsuch Park back in the 18th century. If you didn't see it last night I'd recommend you watch the repeat on BBC2 tonight at 7pm or look it up on iPlayer and jump to about two thirds of the way through if you're the impatient type.

In other news the Huntsmans conversion to lounge bar heaven continues with the addition of multi-coloured scaffolding.

Lastly if you knew an R.D.W. French who lived at 44 The Avenue back in the 70's then you need to see this blog post.

I've just looked at the iplayer link and the St John's/Nonsuch Park bit starts at 37:30
