Syn 2020

. . . is NOT going ahead

Not as planned. The news we were half expecting broke half an hour ago on the DoS Facebook page. (Tuesday 21/6/20)

The Clink

. . . has re-opened

It is not without a sense of irony that I note that Britains most famous prison is . . . open.

What you’ll find here:

Information on the next Day of Syn, a little about the Day of Syn Society and a roster of the characters featured in the seven Doctor Syn books. (Well, four of them so far.)

The Night Riders, excise men, Dragoons and . . . carpenters; all reside within!

Eventually I will complete the character information, include daguerreotypes of the events at Dymchurch and details of the film and television versions of the books.

Hey, I’ve won an award!
