    aha - yes

    - the woodland comes down to a snady beach

    spent the evening over there aground

    lovely

    but could not find any history or evens to go with the place

    besides 15 minutes is probably long enough for most people

    the Orwell next

    The boat is now on the Alde

    I filmed the Orwell last summer

    making each film takes about five days - which I have to steal between days of paid work

    so the gap between where I am and where the films have got to is getting bigger and bigger

    sorry its not anything like real time

    Marvellous stuff Dylan.

    I think you've done my own sailing 'stomping ground' real justice... only i'm worried that too many people will now realise just how lovely it is, and come visiting!

    also... there are several 'graduates' of Ganges on this forum... i've spent a beery evening with one of them, after a great day's sailing, revelling in their fascinating stories of a post war naval training environment.

    Enjoy the Alde, its another utterly lovely place.

    Default from a local - praise indeed

    most of the people who watch the films are from North America -

    so they will never see the place

    but to have a local say the films are okay lovely

    now then

    pronunication

    stoor - like the shotley boys said

    or Stough-er - like the musicians say

    Default stoor

    good for you

    I prefer to go with the pronunciation from the Ist Shotley Sea scouts

    they were all sons of locals

    how did pope Griff pronounce it in his recent TV series
