Registered office address: Unit 34 Vulcan House Business Centre, Vulcan Road, Leicester, Leicestershire, LE5 3EF.Elliot Templeton in Somerset Maugham's novel The Razor's Edge (1944) and the disappointed schoolmaster Croker-Harris in Rattigan's play The Browning Version (1948) were partly inspired by Channon.

Throughout these final fourteen years Chips assiduously describes events in and around Westminster, gossiping about individual MPs’ ambitions and indiscretions, but also rising powerfully to the occasion to capture the mood of the House on VE Day or the ceremony of George VI’s funeral.He knew or was friends with all the leading politicians and aristocrats of the period, wined and dined Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson in the months before the Abdication crisis, and observed at first hand the last days of appeasement. It ends with Chips descending into poor health but still able to turn a pointed phrase about the political events that swirl around him and the great and the good with whom he mingles. An utterly addictive glimpse of London high society and politics in the 40s and 50s, superlatively edited by Simon Heffer. Henry ‘chips’ Channon: The Diaries 1943-57 (vol 3) by Chips Channon and Simon Heffer (ed) | 9781529151725.
