A Walk in the Past

It’s always enormously enjoyable to see Ian Mortimer. I’ve mentioned him several times in the “Acknowledgement” sections of my books, but on this day there was a special reason for seeing him – I’d dedicated the latest book to him!

An excellent lunch, and then the Mortimers and my own family set off on one of Ian’s walks, out of Moretonhampstead and up to Butterdon Down, where we found this little stone. It’s not enormous, only about a man’s height – but who cares? It’s got that atmosphere of age and stolidity that so characterises the moors.
