Re: The 2017 Convention

It was lovely to see you all at the Convention.

.... and for me the experience lives on as that very beautiful bottle of Calvados now resides in my drinks cabinet as a permanent reminder of the wonderful event.

Dartington Hall - worth a visit

I visited Dartington Hall - the inspiration for Weylands - over the weekend. Very atmospheric place. The main hall has a definite 'feel' about it, with massive arched windows. Worth a visit. Now I want to re-read The Haunting of Toby Jugg!

Hi all

I just wanted to say hello to you all and to thank Charles for setting me up on this forum. I've only recently discovered this group (I've been a DW fan in the wilderness!!!!) but look forward to joining you at this year's convention in October.
