Dorset Magazine – What it’s like to own Durdle Door

I’d often wondered what it must be like to own something as amazing as Durdle Door, the iconic limestone arch that’s become the symbol of Dorset, as well as of its custodians, the Lulworth Estate. Luckily the estate’s owner, James Weld, was happy to tell me for this piece which was the cover story in the April 2017 edition of Dorset magazine.

Telegraph Weekend – The Weathervane Man

I have loved writing these pieces about our great British craftspeople for Telegraph Weekend.  Graham Smith is Britain’s most prolific weathervane maker and, like all interviewees in this section, is absolutely fascinating and passionate about his subject.
