Rufus

Rufus - the red-head - was the son of William the Conqueror. The story of his mysterious death in the New Forest in the year 1099 is told in 'The Hunt' chapter of THE FOREST. The place today is marked by the Rufus Stone - or is it? This mystery, also, forms part of the tale of THE FOREST.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
Hard to believe, but this month of April is the 50th anniversary of the 'official' break-up of the Beatles. This author was a very timid young student at Cambridge then. But the far more worldly and talented guy who had the room across the corridor from me had a lovely girlfriend who worked for John Lennon; and one day they scooped me up and took me to Lennon's house at Ascot. The white house with the white piano. Lennon himself wasn't there, but all the same . . . Fifty years later, that day is still so vivid
