River Orwell to River Deben
a quick trip around the corner
fab video as always am thoroughly enjoying them – thought I would challenge your statement regarding the attack on Languard Fort being the last attack on mainland Britain – the French landed a force at Carregwastad Point near Fishguard in 1797 which was in part repulsed by local womenfolk. I think the french plundering and getting very drunk might have had something to do with it. When you get to that part of the world there’s a tapestry made to celebrate the bicentenary of the event on display in the local library together with newspaper stories of the time on display in Fishguard library. I’ll look out for you when you get round to that part of the world – we’re moored in Cardigan. Regards,
If you are correct – and I am sure that you are – then Suzy, one of my masssive team of researchers, had better prepare herself to be on the receiving end of an extremely severe reprimading.
I shall put this on my to-do list.
Interesting to hear the name of the treasonous Englishman that assisted with the attack on Languard. Erskine Childers must have borrowed it for his book The Riddle of the Sands as the name of the treasonous Englishman that was assisting the Germans in preparing an attack from the Frisian Islands. Childers knew his business, as do you.
The videos get better and better. I hope you have as much fun making them as I do watching them.
