Birds, Books and Belfries: An East Yorkshire Parson-Naturalist


An open book, a sea bird and a picture of Rev. Morris


This exhibition centres on the beautiful natural history books held in East Riding Archives which were written by Morris and printed by Benjamin Fawcett of Driffield. There are also loans from a private collector including the first Morris and Fawcett book collaborations, correspondence with Randolph Churchill about bird conservation and rare monthly-published book sections. Contemporary film footage of the bird colonies at RSBP Bempton Cliffs shows the habitats which Morris was passionate about protecting.
