After seven hours filming over three days, I am more than a bit dissapointed that I was on for about three seconds without any billing! However I have been on lots before so I suppose I should not moan, and it was good for traveller education. As regards songs from the Roger Brook era, the answer is...

I believe it will. However if you have Sky you can select BBC N.West and see/record it live.

Nick Dow on TV this Monday

I am on BBC TV North West ' Inside Out' Monday 19.30. If you are in the south you will need to select BBC North West on your Sattelite to recieve it. Well its me or Coronation Street! That probably counts out 90% of the Northern Audience! See you soon.

Wow!! Reckon this is it!. The nearest Pub to Hopton court is the Crown. you can walk to it. Geuss what. It has an extensive garden that leads to a wood. Now it's not too much of a leap to swipe the Peacock name from the Tenbury pub and the archery fron Hopton court and bullseye, we have Cardinals Fo...

Hopton Court is near Kidderminster but the Peacock is nearTenbury. I would imagine DW altered the distances to suit the story. Hopton Court is also near a small village which looks good too. I bet DW spent some time in the area, and opted for these two places to become his Pride and Folly. If you lo...

Thats clinched it! The Peacock used to be a coaching Inn and has raftered rooms and wood paneling and great food.

How about this for Cardinals Folly?

This stands a good chance I think http://www.hoptoncourt.co.uk/ Hopton court is a stones throw from the Peacock Inn at Tenbury Wells, (if you are very good at throwing stones)and has extensive Gardens and also produces and sella selection of wines. I can not see it being any where else. The nearest ...

Corus Hotel is ready and willing to have us back on November 7th. I need to give them a number of delegates, in order to start beating them down on price. The more people the cheaper it should be, and the Credit Crunch may work in our favour. No doubt Charles and I will get together soon.

OK folks what's happening.?I am swamped with work (no complaints) and have not done anything, but if we are going to have a meeting this year decisions need to be made. Yes I know we are all busy, but we must all make time, me included. Where? When? How many? How much and what content. It was so goo...

It might be best to make a group decision as to what point of the compass for our convention would be the best. Assuming East is the least practical, and using London as our centre, North would bring us to Kidderminster and Cardinals Folly, West would encompass the already discussed Bear and DRO car...

Loved the story of your meeting. The obvious affection you have for the Musketeers is shared by so many people. I picked up a copy of Dangerous inheritance at a car boot and in the back cover was a requiem for the Duke written by the last owner of the book, full of tears and gratitude. Steve mention...
