Are you near Tonbridge, and fancy hanging a nice plate bearing the image of a clipper ship on your study wall? I found this one at the Hospice Charity Shop in Tonbridge’s High Street. I thought it was a very decent buy for £8, and I’m very happy to support a hospice when I can. I’ll never forget how the people at the Taunton one treated my mum in her last days.

When I was at the shop, I noticed they’ve got a pile of similar plates depicting a variety of clippers in different situations. So if you’re local, get down there!

All this talk of clippers reminded me to take a look at the Cutty Sark website. How about this for an example of extreme restoration?
