South Downs [Mar. 7th, 2012|12:08 pm]
Tony Grist
David Hare has written a play reflecting life at his and my old school- and the Old Boys magazine has asked Chr*st*ph*r C*mpl*ng- who was chaplain in our day- to review it.  Hare's memories are unkindly- and the review tails off into pitiable self defence. Apparently L*nc*ng as C*mpl*ng knew it was "famous for its liberal attitudes". If it was, it had precious little to do with him. Poor old chap; doesn't he know that artists always have the last word?

Did you see that programme the other night with Julia Bradbury and Hugh Dennis "doing" the geography of the South Downs? They did a piece on that college chapel - most particularly how it was made of local sandstone which is similar in texture to Edinburgh rock, and they keep having to shovel cartloads of sand off the staircase. It's crumbling to powder like the vanity project it was. Looks great from the main road though. I pass it often on my visits to FIL.

No, I missed that.

The chapel is (or was) sliding down hill at an alarming rate- and we used to joke it would be Shoreham Cathedral by the time it was finished.
