Going Once.. Going Twice.. Going Wrong!

Updated: Jun 3, 2019

The new book Going Once.. Going Twice.. Going Wrong! is a work of non-fiction.

No names have been changed, no characters invented, no events fabricated.

This is a fascinating insight into the true story of what

almost happened in Ravenscar over 120 years ago.

It unearths the facts, busts the myths and looks at the finances.

The book includes many images and documents that had been long since forgotten.

​It unfolds an extraordinary story revealing the fraud, gambling and womanising of a wayward reverend.

It looks at the dealings of eminent gentlemen of the time including bankers, barristers, Members of Parliament and the Privy Council. 

There are direct associations to two British monarchies. Even one of the greatest social reformers of the time and also the most infamous survivor of the Titanic had a connection with Ravenscar.

​Over one thousand people bought a plot and staked a claim in the new venture. 

​But what went wrong?
