As some of you know I live in the area of SW.

Yesterday myself, my wife and her youngest son (45) took a walk down Quay Lane for the first time in some years. Things are much the same, a new house has been built by the Quay (not to my taste), but fortunately Witch’s cottage is unchanged.

On our return to the main road my wife’s son (45) reminisced that in childhood he and his brother used cross the field to the left of the Quay (when you’re facing the backwaters) and play on the remains of a large boat (no longer there.) This would have been in he early 1980s,

He knows of my enthusiasm for AR but nothing of the plot of any of the books, I related to him about the wreck ‘Speedy’ in SW and began to wonder if anything is known of AR's original for it.
