I first commissioned Rob when I was Editor of Lancashire Life, and he was one of the first writers I recruited when I went to edit Lancashire & North West Magazine, now the UK’s largest circulation county magazine. His wide ranging essays on the landscape, heritage, culture and architecture of Lancashire and Yorkshire – he also writes for our sister publication Yorkshire Ridings Magazine – are different from anything else any other editorial contributor produces for us. His enthusiasm for these areas shines through in his essays. I say essays but these are much more than mere reporting, rather forensic examinations of his subjects yet presented in an accessible, readable style.

For the better part of a decade Rob Hawley and I have collaborated on his 'Jonas Holdsworth' local history articles and his knowledge and insight into the people and places of Yorkshire, Lancashire and the Lake District continues to impress me with every new subject we tackle. Rob responds brilliantly to my photographs and writes copy that exactly complements their mood and character. He's remarkably well informed and can turn his hand to anything in the world of art, heritage and countryside.

Rob has never missed a deadline when working with me. He's totally reliable. He's also brilliant to bounce ideas off!

We commissioned Robert Hawley to write a history of Lancashire specifically for young children. It was thoroughly researched, hugely informative, a pleasure to read and, I must say, very well received.
