Save Titnore Woods

Spent a few hours in Worthing yesterday, visiting the Museum (to see the Small World exhibition), having lunch with Dan, going on a demo to Save Titnore Woods!, and finally a treat trip to Waitrose to buy a veggie pasty for my tea (plus a bottle of Somerset Pomona with a Burne-Jones picture on the label to enhance the Pre-Raphaelite experience of earlier seeing Holman Hunt's 'Bianca' for the first time). The Small World exhibition had a wonderful model of 'The Great Bear,' the UK's first Pacific and the only one ever built by the GWR - and as a railway theme developed, we heard that Worthing had been visited that very morning by a streamlined steam train, 34067 'Tangmere'.
