FOLLOWING THE LYMINGTON BLUE PLAQUES TRAIL

In this new series, Ray Mayes follows the

Lymington Blue Plaques Trail. There are 13

plaques throughout the town. In each issue of

The Lymington Directory, Ray will enhance the

detail provided in the Trail leaflet on one

plaque. This month he starts at The Town Quay.

The Old Town Quay

The focal point of Lymington’s maritime history

has always been its Town Quay.

“The Quay” was mentioned in the 1405 Charter

granted by Edward Courtney Earl of Devon, the

Lord of the Manor. Anchorage and wharfage

dues being collected at that time suggest an

already established settled quay area.

Today, walking from the High Street, Quay Hill

leads into the cobbled Quay Street. The former

pub The Old Alarm was named after the yacht

built for Joseph Weld in 1821, at a time when

yacht building was taking over from salt as a

major industry in Lymington.

An accessible and well-sheltered tidal river

estuary gave rise to a heavily used Quay over

the centuries. Maritime trade included the

exporting of wool and salt while imports for the

town and its New Forest hinterland included

fish, wine and trade from the continent.

The Quay used to be a bustling area, with

sailing ships importing coal and timber and

carrying away the salt produced locally. This

would once have been a rough and

disreputable area.

Present buildings on the quay include The Ship

Inn (dating from 1850) and The House on the

Quay (once a bakery and shipping suppliers)

built in 1675.

In 1900, a rowing boat (the ‘penny ferry’) would

cross from the Quay to the old ferry house on

the Walhampton side opposite. Most clients

however paid ½ d, which only took them to the

jetty behind the railway bridge (opened in

1884). The longer journey by road from town to

Walhampton and the Undershore would be

across the river along Bridge Road (or toll house

causeway).

Today, commercial activity at the Town Quay is

limited to local

fishing. In World

War II, however,

the river played an

important part in

the build up to D-

Day (6 June 1944)

and the liberation

of Europe. In 1944,

the River was full of naval craft including

minesweeping forces for the allied invasion.

From this point of the Lymington River on 3

June 1944, the 2 nd Battalion of the Essex

Regiment (known as The Pompadours) sailed as

part of Operation Overlord. The Pompadours

landed on Gold Beach in Normandy, went on to

liberate Bayeux on 7 June, and experienced

fierce fighting into Germany until the end of

the war.

The Lymington Blue Plaques Trail

The Lymington Blue Plaques Trail comprises 13

blue plaques established since 1998 by the

Rotary Club of Lymington at sites of historical

interest, highlighting important facts about

buildings and people. To promote the plaques,

the Rotary Club has produced a leaflet

describing the Trail. The full trail leaflet is

available from the St. Barbe Museum and Art

Gallery or from the Rotary Club.

WILDLIFE MATTERS ……... to all of us

NEW AGRICULTURAL BILL

In September, the Government introduced its

new Agricultural Bill. As expected, it contains

provisions about paying farmers for managing

their farms during the transition period

following our exit from the EU. The Bill tries to

reassure us that our food supply chains will be

protected. It is complex legislation which I will

not bore you with, but how will this change help

wildlife and habitats?

Before the Government produced the Bill,

independent wildlife groups such as the RSPB,

BTO and our national Wildlife Trusts provided

evidence and suggestions to make sure that

wildlife could also benefit from change. The

Wildlife Trusts said:

• The recovery of our diminishing wildlife would

depend on the new Agricultural Bill enabling

farmers to create and restore natural habitats

because 70% of our land is farmed.

• Farmers should receive public money for

producing benefits to society, such as creating

habitats for wildlife, conserving soils and

protecting communities against flooding.

The Trusts says that farming with nature makes

sense and that healthier soils would help nature

recover – from pollinators to natural pest

controls. The Red List for bees says that one in

ten wild bees face extinction and that over the

past 50-years. Half the bee, butterfly and moth

species studied in the 2013 State of Nature

Report had declined! Ellie Brodie, senior policy

manager for the Wildlife Trusts says: “It’s time

the Treasury acknowledged that the public want

to see tangible change to meet the scale of the

challenge that lies ahead”. There is further

concern about how the new legislation will be

enforced, especially because much of the policy

is not formally linked to the Bill and so has no

legal underpinning!

On a positive note, there is at least certainty

that the current payments for Higher Level

Stewardship and Countryside Stewardship

schemes will be available through the 7-year

transition period, which allows farmers to be a

little more confident in making their future

business decisions.

‘BRENT GEESE’ – ARCTIC SIBERIA

TO THE SOLENT

Keen-eyed birdwatchers will have noticed the

first arrivals of the Dark-bellied Brent Geese to

their wintering grounds along the Solent. A

single bird spotted on the 8th October could

well have been an adult which sometimes oversummers

here. The

first small numbers

arrived in our part

of the Solent from

their Siberian

breeding grounds

on about 15th

October, with 100

recorded between

Hurst Castle and Saltgrass Lane, Milford.

The Solent is a stronghold for Brents holding

some 30% of all Brent Geese visiting the UK in

the winter, of which up to 13% can be found

along our part of the coastline. Their journey

starts in the Arctic tundra, where extreme

weather conditions allow them just 3 or 4-

months in which

young. They

depart Siberia in

mid-September

and start arriving

back here in

early/mid-

October, having

migrated some

2,500 miles. When they depart in March/April

they stop off along the Baltic coast before

reaching the Arctic in early June. Family groups

migrate together, mostly at night.

YOUR ALTERNATIVE CHRISTMAS

Whether you’re a Christmas Eeyore and can’t

wait to see the back of it all, or the tinsel and

carols have you counting down the days with

the glee of a six-year-old, we’ve got gifts galore

at The Hub. Santa delivers pressies to us that

you’re unlikely to find anywhere else!

Our gifts are out of the ordinary, many made by

local artisans. Obviously we are The Natural

Health Hub so natural is a theme running

through our Christmas stock – but that doesn’t

make us all brown paper and pious… everything

is irresistibly pretty. There are presents that will

please both your friends and family and your

purse. And if you just can’t decide… get them a

Hub voucher.

aromatherapy candles, some with a beautiful

gemstone inside that is a last-forever memory

after the candle has burned down; Lovetob’s

homemade natural skin and body care delights;

and our ever-popular non-toxic nail polishes

from Dr’s Remedy – yes, they’ve got glittery

gold and deep festive reds and purples!

For an unusual idea with a local touch, Art by

Graham limited edition prints feature pictures

of local scenes, like a rowing boat on the

seashore or a pony grazing, cleverly remastered

with a nod to pop art.

Among our many fragrant gifts sets, from Neal’s

Yard and Weleda, prize star quality has to go to

Weleda’s Advent Calendar, with 12 mini

surprise treats from Weleda’s organic skincare

and toiletry range. Heavy hint to hubbies: this

would be a loving gesture to She Who Has to Do

all the Cooking.

Where would Christmas be without food and

drink? We have locally made gluten-free

Christmas cakes, and Positive Potions

handmade botanical drink drops to add to

sparkling water for a refreshing (and healthy!)

soft drink for kids and the non-drivers.

Our staff had a sneak preview of all our stock

and what wowed them most are the Bewater

gem water bottles. They’re made of glass but

each has an interchangeable crystal inside, with

its own special energy to lift the spirits,

empower or calm.

We’re particularly pleased to be offering Field

House Therapies’ delumptious range of lovingly

hand-crafted aromatherapy bath bombs, soaks

and oils; Liz William’s Orchid genuine

Here for you…

Don’t forget of course that we are always here

for your health. If Christmas is an emotional

minefield or a bleak patch, we have therapists

who can support you through. Or we’re on

hand with natural solutions for your winter

ailments – even festive hangovers!

NOTES FROM THE SOLENT CELLAR

The Art of Food & Wine Matching

The festive period will soon be upon us, so we

thought we would offer some advice on food

and wine matching. We think that a meal can

be enhanced by a well thought out wine to

match, and we are always here to help guide

and advise on classic or more interesting

pairings.

How about one of these wines to enjoy on Christmas day?

When looking for a wine to pair to a particular

dish it is worth considering the following

factors:

Acidity

All wine has acidity and this can be detected in

the mouth, high acidity in a wine would be a

similar sensation to when sucking on a lemon.

Wines with high acidity work amazingly well

with fatty foods, which is why fish and chips

goes so well with Champagne! A wine with

lemony acidity is also like adding a seasoning to

a dish, for example the classic oysters and

Muscadet pairing. Wines with a low acidity

tend to be from hotter climates and richer in

flavours and these go with richer flavoured

foods.

Body & Tannin

When we talk about the body of a wine, it is to

do with the power and strength in flavour.

Tannins come from grape seeds, skins and also

any ageing in oak add body and dryness to a

wine. A full bodied, tannic wine will go well

with fuller flavoured foods, for example

Chateauneuf du Pape which is full bodied and

tannic pairs well to meats such as slow roast

shoulder of lamb or roast beef. Lighter bodied

wines with low tannins such as Pinot Noir,

Beaujolais or Mencia pair well to white meats

and meaty fish.

Sweetness

At this festive time of year it's

a real treat to pair a dessert

course with a sweet wine. As

a general rule a wine to go

with a dessert should be

sweeter than the food. We

have an amazing selection

of sweet wines to pair to

different types of dessert.

Just a small selection of

our selection of dessert

wines

Classic Festive Matches

Smoked Salmon Canapés - Try pairing these

with a Chablis, Gruner Veltliner, Albarino or a

dry Riesling.

Turkey and the trimmings - A white with a bit

of body to stand up to the medley of flavours. I

suggest something from Southern Burgundy,

Pinot Gris or an aromatic white Rhone. On the

red front, something juicy with bright cherry/

cranberry fruit such as Pinot Noir, Barbera

d'Alba, unoaked Spanish Garnacha or

Beaujolais.

Mince Pies - Mince pies tend to be enjoyed in

the afternoon or with a bit of blue cheese, try

pairing to an off dry Madeira or a Moscatel.

(*Madeira Saturday tasting is on Dec 1st*)

Cheese - Most people go for red wine when

pairing to the cheeseboard, but often this

overpowers the flavour. This year ,try serving a

white wine from the Savoie or Jura region, an

off-dry Riesling or Muscat Beaumes de Venise,

or if you're a fortified wine lover try with a

nutty Amontillado or white port.

Pop into the shop for help with your food and

wine matching this Christmas!

MERRY WOOFMAS

At Christmas, if dogs could talk, they'd

probably tell us that we'd gone bonkers.

Throughout the year they happily plod on in

their cuddly, companionable way, expecting

or wanting nothing in return except your love

and attention, a nice walk, some sniffing time,

a regular bowl of tasty grub and some clean

water.

personalised label; "It’s bound to get your

dog's tail wagging and is best enjoyed either

on its own or poured over food in order to

fully appreciate those savoury flavours",

might be on the way. Or perhaps there's the

chance of another tin of those 'Good Dog

Hand Baked Biscuits' with his name on them.

Fido's keeping his paws crossed that all this

good stuff doesn't come with the

embarrassment of having to wear another of

those Christmas reindeer or red snowflake

jumpers, or the frightful pongfest of 'Kennel

Number 5' or 'Old Spike' dog perfumes; "a

bouquet of uplifting floral scents in a bottle,

Kennel 5 Cologne will give your dog instant

sophistication and will make them smell

divine", that he had to put up with last time

all this craziness happened!

‘Catherine Dashwood Photography’

Unexpectedly once a year at Christmas they

wake up as usual, only to find that for some

reason that they simply can't fathom out, they

are required to do odd things - like wear

funny hats, bright jumpers and go round with

red bows tied to their collars. They go along

with all this because they vaguely remember

that last time all this frivolous nonsense

happened, there was some very tasty extra

food and drink too!

Fido's actually not as daft as he looks. He will

have noticed that, instead of getting the usual

quota of cuddles, his owner has recently been

spending even more time touching that

screen thingy that she always carries around,

and buying stuff online. So he doesn't mind

too much, because it probably means that

TRAVEL guide

Thailand: In Part 2, Christina explores the

Elephant Hills & Phuket

Having just returned from Thailand for the

second time in four weeks, I thought it best to

write this article on the rest of my experiences in

this beautiful country.

My second trip was with Turkish Airlines via

Istanbul as they fly direct to Phuket, with the

lowest Business Class fares in the industry. I

spent the second half of my trip in Phuket so

flying home from there was a real bonus.

I went, initially, to Bangkok again and visited the

reclining Buddha and the Grand Palace where on

this occasion I was given a blessing by a monk!

After a whistle stop tour of Bangkok which

included several hotel visits and an evening at

the Sky Bar, we flew to Phuket and had a twohour

drive north to the Jungle and Elephant

Hills.

This was the highlight of my trip; we spent two

nights and three days here staying in a luxury

tent. Our first day was spent with the elephants

in their jungle sanctuary. The elephants are free

to roam the area and we were able to wash and

feed them. It was a wonderful experience and

you can spend as

much time with

these amazing

creatures as you

wish.

Afterwards, we

were taken on a

canoe trip down

the river which

was a beautifully

peaceful

experience.

The evenings at Elephant

Hills are quiet, with local

school children showing

off their Thai dancing

skills as well as a cooking

demonstration, and then

dinner with all of the

other explorers.

After a surprisingly good

night’s sleep, we spent the second day trekking

in the jungle which was fantastic, cooking on a

barbeque in the Jungle followed, by a longtail

boat trip and kayaking around the Lake Camp.

This is also part of Elephant Hills where

customers can spend the night in a tent on the

lake.

Leaving Elephant

Hills, we made our

way down to

Phuket for hotel

visits and to see

the area. We

viewed some

stunning hotels

and interestingly,

saw many villas suitable for family groups from 4

to 16 people.

Learning about new accommodation and areas

of Thailand has been such a joy, and if you are

interested in learning or hearing further details

or would like to have a bespoke adventure

organised for you to Thailand or anywhere else

in the world, please pop in to see us at Milford

Travel at 78 High Street, Milford on Sea,

Do you have youngsters that you would like

to encourage to engage more with their local

wildlife? If you do, we would welcome them

and yourselves to our special ‘birdwatching for

beginners’ sessions held throughout the winter

months in our two comfortable bird hides.

MCV will have telescopes and spare binoculars

for visitors to use during these sessions and will

have ‘birding experts’ on hand to help with

bird identification. There is no charge for these

sessions, but a small donation to help provide

winter feed for the birds is always welcome.

MCV have two beautifully constructed bird

watching facilities. The elevated Bird Hide at

Sturt Pond was

BIRD WATCHING FOR BEGINNERS

constructed in

February 2009

and overlooks

the nature

reserve

comprising

saltmarsh, reedbeds,

grazing

meadow and the pond itself. Some 120

different bird species have been recorded

there since the opening. The Hide is open FREE

to the public every day of the year between

9am and 5pm (or dusk if earlier).

The Hide is located at the eastern end of Hurst

Road between The Marine and Hurst Depot

(big black shed). Charges apply for car parking

here.

The second MCV

facility is the Bird

Observatory at

Keyhaven. This is

normally only open

by the pre-purchase

of an MCV Key-fob.

However, we open

the doors FREE to children and their parents/

grandparents once a month to encourage

youngsters to see the birds regularly seen here.

The Observatory is located 400m along the

start of the Ancient Highway (The Gun PH end).

Use the NFDC car park a short distance away.

So, the Hide at Sturt Pond is open between

10am and Noon on the First Saturday of each

month, and the Observatory is open at the

same times on the Third Saturday of each

month right the way through till the end of

March 2019.

• Roses can still be planted so long as the soil is not too wet or frosty.

• Check stakes and ties on newly planted trees; wind rock can cause a lot of damage.

• Continue to plant deciduous hedges if the soil is workable.

• You can still plant lily bulbs if you see some on offer, but check that they are in good

condition before you buy.

• Do not over water in the greenhouse and do not water late in the day.

• Pot up plants of primroses, polyanthus and border auriculas and bring into the cold

greenhouse for early flowering.

• If you have not sown any broad beans then do so now.

• Check stored fruit and remove any that has rotted.

• Work in organic manure, where required, in the vegetable plot. Do not lime at the

same time.

• Remove algae and moss growth from stonework and paving on a dry day.

• Do not plant conifers and evergreen shrubs in cold frosty weather.

• Clean paeony crowns of dead stems and foliage and cover with an inch of peat or

sawdust. This helps to prevent infection of the blooms.

• Send for some seed catalogues and order something different

Coast

Starts: December 1 - 10:00am

Ends: January 13 - 4:00pm

The first of a series of invited artist

exhibitions in which we bring together

leading contemporary artists working in a

range of media to explore their responses to

a common theme. Coast: its atmosphere,

landscapes, wildlife, activities and

communities are all examined in this first exhibition which includes work by

Richard Bawden, Alison Bolton, Jeremy Gardiner, Angie Lewin, Ffiona Lewis,

Howard Phipps, Pine Feroda, and Michael Porter. The exhibition will explore how

aspects of the British coastline have inspired each artist’s practice and its

incredibly varied character will be reflected in an eclectic celebration of the

shoreline. This will be a selling exhibition.

What Are You Hoping For This Christmas?

We’re all hoping for something. Depending on your age, it might be an Xbox, a

phone, something for the house or garden, time with family and friends over

some great food, or just a chance to put your feet up. Then there’s the job of

figuring out what those family and friends are all hoping for, and trying to buy

them something they’ll like. And the food is meant to be special isn’t it – more

planning and shopping.

Most of us hope we’ll have a happy day with loved ones, but that can be more difficult to plan

for. Conversations can take an unexpected turn, in good ways or bad. The rows can erupt over

almost anything at Christmas. Everything seems more heightened. Sometimes it’s a challenge to

get through a couple of days with family we just don’t see eye to eye with. Expectations

sometimes turn to disappointment. Some people find their own family the loneliest place to be.

For some, Christmas is a sad time, reminding us of happier memories, of those we have lost, or

fallen out with. We may be wondering who we will see this Christmas, if anyone.

At Compass we help people think about and work on their relationships – why they work, why

they don’t. We can’t change our family, but we can think about our role in it, and how the family

relate to each other. We can learn to listen, instead of reacting. We can get better at

understanding instead of judging. Compass is a good place to think about all of this with a

trained counsellor, and get a new perspective. We don’t take sides, and everything you say is

confidential.

TURN UP THE VOLUME?

Do you find difficulty in hearing dialogue in

TV dramas? Can you remember when you

had no problems whatsoever in hearing

actors on the TV?

Well you’re far from alone, it’s not an

uncommon discussion for me to be

involved with when I am installing a new TV

system. But why is this and more

importantly, what can be done about it?

One problem is the naturalistic speech

actors currently use. It’s supposed to sound

more like someone speaking rather than

the old style enunciation school of acting

which, though very clear, wasn’t the way

people actually spoke.

Another issue is that dramas tend to have

dramatic music and often it is at similar

frequencies to the human voice, making

the dialogue harder to hear. The sound

technician can make allowances for this,

but it depends on the director as to how it

eventually turns out.

Further, our TV’s are getting increasingly

thinner which leaves much less room for

speakers able to reproduce the sound

without colouring it, boosting particular

frequencies as a result of how they are

manufactured.

It seems that TV manufacturers are now

starting to make sure that how the TV

sounds is more of a priority, but what

about those of us who have already make

significant investments in a new TV, what

can we do? If you just turn up the volume,

it may not make much difference other

than annoying everyone else!

Most more modern TV’s have an onscreen

menu which allows you to fiddle with all

sorts of things most people don’t look at

once the channels have been tuned. In

amongst all sorts of other settings, you will

normally find a number of different sound

settings. Commonly they will be referred to

as ‘sports’ or ‘film’ or something like that

and will change the sound that comes out

of your TV speakers when selected. It’s

worth trying them to see what difference it

makes, you can always return to the

normal or default settings.

If changing your TV settings doesn’t have

the effect you are hoping, then it may be

worth considering a soundbar. They are

available from below £100 to £ridiculous

depending on extra facilities and will

deliver the sort of sound your TV will never

be able to. It is best to ask for expert advice

before purchase as they are definitely not

all created equal!

Steven Lord

In 2017 there were 95,000 applications for a

Grant of Representation by individuals; that is

for Probate where there is a Will, or Letters of

Administration on intestacy or other reasons.

This compares with 155,000 applications

through a Solicitor or alternative business

structures. The person taking the Grant is

called “The Personal Representative “ (PR).

The process of applying for a Grant of

Representation can be relatively

straightforward if the assets and liabilities of the

deceased’s Estate are simple, with much

guidance being available from the local Probate

Registry and HM Revenue and Customs. Still,

most PRs prefer to use a Solicitor for a variety of

reasons:

• There are international assets, business

interests, or trusts involved, or

• There is family conflict, second marriages,

overseas beneficiaries, or

• There are complex Inheritance Tax or Capital

Gains Tax considerations, or

• The process is simply too time consuming, or

• T he Executors are aware that there might be

problems with their lack of experience or

knowledge.

The role of PR is generally a thankless task,

taking considerable time and effort for no

personal reward. A lay PR can claim out of

pocket expenses, but not for time. If the Estate

is insolvent or not correctly distributed, the PR

can find themselves personally liable for debts

or charges of maladministration, as well as

criticism from beneficiaries whose first question

DIY PROBATE PITFALLS

is generally ‘how much will I inherit’ followed

quickly by ‘when will I receive my inheritance’.

The beneficiaries will expect to be kept up to

date with progress in the administration of an

estate and for all matters to be dealt with

punctually. A PR needs to be confident in

interpretation of the law, taxes and to be able

to keep accounts properly. Increasingly we find

that we are being consulted by beneficiaries

who are frustrated by a lack of progress and

communication by lay PRs who seem to be in no

rush to complete their duties, or have been

overwhelmed by the complexities

involved. Such delays can be expensive for the

beneficiaries, especially where a property is left

vacant and there are ongoing charges for

utilities, insurance and maintenance.

The cost of instructing a Solicitor to assist the PR

with help in the administration of an Estate is

normally borne by the Estate, not by the PR

personally, so taking early advice on particular

issues or general guidance can be beneficial to

both the PR and the Beneficiary.

Heppenstalls Solicitors can offer guidance to

PRs, apply for the Grant of Representation on

their behalf, or can offer a full Estate

administration service and are happy to offer a

competitive quotation or a fixed price service,

depending upon the assistance required. If you

would like to speak with Steven or the team for

advice please do not hesitate to contact us at
