Caught by the River

Radio On – Eric Ravilious: Chalk and Ice

8th February 2015

Dear Caught by the River,

Only just got wind of this which is being aired this evening on BBC Radio 3 @ 18:45.

A lovely sounding Sunday Feature exploring the Essex landscapes of the mighty Eric Ravilious – includes a contribution from Robert Macfarlane. Just the ticket for your readers.

A pal and I visited Furlongs this last summer. One of Rav’s most famous views from the house that Peggy Angus rented in a fold of Sussex Downs. We found it quite by chance and were able to take in the view thanks to the kindly owner who was amused by our excitement.

All the best,

Dickie Straker
