  • On a secret mission

    Agent Z here, on a secret mission.



    We have been sent to a strange outer corner of empire, but I can't reveal where that is.





    However I can say that some of the customs here are a bit odd.

    That looks awfully like Corfe Castle, and yes, rapper dancing is odd.

    Llooking forward to the next report!

      As you're in the area, have you tried Hope Matravers? It's a pretty little village. Also Dancing Ledge at Langton Matravers is interesting and scenic. The Early Spider Orchids at Dancing Ledge may be coming out - they are a local speciality and the flower of Dorset.

        A local beer is Dorset Knob.

        Hence, go to the bar. "I'd like another knob"

        Certainly sir. Large one?

          Are you anywhere near Lytchett Matravers? I camped there in my youth when we were helping support the Dorset Steam Rally. There was a great pub near there called The Worlds End I think, wonder if it's still there 40 yrs on?

            Thane for these target locations. I will attempt to infiltrate them disguised as a stranger....

              I believe that Corfe was used as Casterbridge in the excellent BBC adaptation of Hardy's 'The Mayor of Casterbridge' some years ago.

                So, deeper under cover here in no man's land.

                I decided to disguise myself with some Hardy Perennials, subject wise. I donned some well worn cliches and ventured out.
