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.

We asked Rob to create and edit a bi-annual journal for our members. As a creative partner in this, Rob was great to work with. He always hit just the right tone: serious in editorials, humorous in news snippets and celebratory in articles about well-loved people and places. Rob was always full of creative suggestions for how the whole thing could be improved. Several years after he moved on to other jobs, the journal he founded is still going strong!

- Peter Boyce, Chairman, Association of British Counties


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!
