World of Interiors

A pink library in Wiltshire, World of Interiors cover,  October 2016

The October 2016 edition of World of Interiors magazine is worth looking at carefully, all 437 pages of it.  On page 393 there is a floor mat in Henry 'Tarka the Otter' Williamson's writing shed, made from an old sack bearing the place name 'Stiffkey'.  Not everyone knows that this is pronounced 'Stewkey'.  I do, simply because I did a story for the Sunday Times in 1969 about an eccentric vicar from Stiffkey who ended up as an end-of-the-pier attraction.  More tomorrow.
