Gap Year – The Diary of a Victorian Teenager


The Diary of Robert Burland Billinge.

Written at the height of the British Empire, a fascinating insight into the concerns of a Victorian teenager. A rare and unique page-by-page diary more than 150 years old, and still mostly legible despite having at times been inundated.

The diary author, having spent a ‘gap year’ on a trip to Assam, in later life became for 25 years the Vicar of Urswick in Cumbria.

Transcribed by Peter Johnson.
