Am I scraping the barrel, 24's running out or is there a final flurry to be had?
Can anyone extract any entertainment from the A24 Between Worthing and Clapham? (I couldn't)
This is getting a bit repetitive
I used to work not a million miles away from the A24 between Worthi.... oh, you get the idea
Along that stretch of road there is some entertainment value to be had - the first commercial radio broadcast came from Castle Goring.... the South Coast Broadcasting Company, no less
Castle Goring is also mildly interesting :
"Castle Goring was designed by John Rebecca for Sir Bysshe Shelley, 1st Baronet. It was intended that his grandson, the renowned poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, would live at Castle Goring; however, he drowned in Italy aged just 29, so he never took possession of the house.
In 1845, Mary Shelley, who inherited the building as widow of the poet, sold it to tenant Sir George Brooke-Pechell who'd been residing at the property since 1825."
