He has published eight books including one on English cathedrals and another on British castles and a Life of William Wilberforce. When he left the Commons, he moved back to his native Lincolnshire and lives close to the Cathedral. He is Chairman of the Historic Lincoln Trust, President of Heritage Lincolnshire, and a Patron of the International Bomber Command Centre. He is a Trustee of the Usher Gallery Trust and Deputy High Steward of the Cathedral. In March 2022 he was given the Freedom of the City of Lincoln.
