This month the Horti are re-launching a piece of local history. On one of my walks recently, I visited my friend Oliver Matthews and bought one of his wonderful village plans he compiled just before the millennium. This is an A2 sized print of the Ordinance Survey maps from 1796 and 1996 showing how Long Marston and the surrounding hamlets looked at the time, superbly drawn by Ken Peak, accompanied by some beautifully painted pictures of local landmarks by Phyl Thorpe. With the ever changing village population, the Horti feel we should reissue these at £10 a copy. Anyone interested should contact Oliver directly on 01296 662181.
