Summary

When Constable Nick leads the long-established procession of villagers around Aidensfield's ancient parish extremities, he realises his duty as a rural bobby comprises lots of boundaries over which he should not cross.

Nonetheless he must occasionally ignore such restrictions to fulfill his role as village constable satisfactorily. Far beyond the call of duty are his efforts to get a bride to the church on time and the occasion he finds himself defending a youth charged with a public order offence.

But when St. Aidan's Well almost dries up as a body is found on the moors above Aidensfield, Constable Nick knows he is duty bound to continue his individualistic performance of wide-ranging constabulary responsibilities.

Disappointing performance

The reader somehow makes Nicholas Rhea appear cold & judgmental - even giving the impression he's mocking those he writes about. I miss the old recordings by Christopher Kay.

Utterly boring!

Kept hoping it would get interesting - finally gave up when it came to a 10 minute lecture on the law which had absolutely nothing to do with the plot!

Delightful story telling

The whole Constable series is an experience in gentle, fun, delightful story telling. This reader, Nick McArdle is a perfect fit for the tone of the tales. Audible, please get more of the Constable books on audio!!
