Local Author: Marcia Moseley Webb

In Conversation, 11th July 2011

Marcia Moseley Webb, author of children’s stories, television scripts and poetry, has lived in Hadleigh for over 30 years.  Although now out of print, Marcia’s children’s books are still available through Amazon; a full list of her published works can be viewed in the companion article here.

On life in Hadleigh, Marcia said:  “I really enjoy being part of the community and our lovely old church [St James-the-Less] holds a special place in my heart!”  She continues, “My grandson Simon is a sports master at King John School, Thundersley, so I am very excited for all the young people that the Olympic Games Mountain Bike Event will be coming to Hadleigh next year.”

Marcia still felt inspired to write, and – at the time of the interview – was putting the ‘finishing touches’ to her autobiography, in which she reveals her extraordinary life.  Marcia says:  “Be prepared to be moved, delighted and very surprised!”

Here is the 2014 bio from her own web-site, recovered from the WayBack machine.

  • Sadly, Marcia became unwell shortly after this interview and passed away some months later. As a longstanding friend I was invited to attend a ‘Service to Celebrate the Life of Marcia Moseley Webb’, along with other friends and family members, on 19th April 2012, at her beloved St James-the-Less in Hadleigh. Guy Negus led the tribute and the Reverend David Charles read one of Marcia’s poems. As the service ended, and Marcia left the church for the last time, a purple glow from the stained- glass windows graced the pews and I was reminded of her words: “At the end of a show I don’t believe in bows, just the fade out.”
