My backyard stamp
Blognor Regis points out that the Royal Mail has seen fit to picture an area Horton Down, about a mile or so from The Castle on a stamp - it is one of my favourite spots in the world - a wild and desolate plain; two thousand years ago maybe the most densely populated area in Europe, now as remote as anywhere in southern England. I have been up there on long summer days and on a freezing day, blowing a blizzard waiting for a Partridge to pop out of the Rape. Fantastic.
So why haven't I seen one of the stamps or heard about it in the local press?
