A Year of Wildlife Photography

David Plummer

Tuesday 23rd October at 7:30pm in Small Dole Village Hall

David Plummer is one of the UK’s best known wild-life photographers. He lives in Small Dole and those who live locally get the benefit of his open garden/exhibition events, his talks, his courses at Woods Mill, and his competition judging. If you don’t live locally, then you can hope to catch him on the television or, better, buy a copy of his recent book.

A coin found near Devil’s Dyke

Coin found near Devil's Dyke

  • Obverse — A head in profile to the right, the hair, face, nose, and eyes being formed by an extraordinary assemblage of curves
  • Reverse — A horse to the right similarly drawn; below, a boar.
  • Æ weight 90 grains.

This coin is one of a class belonging to and found very frequently in the Channel Islands. They resemble the Gaulish series more than the British, though they are not unfrequently found in England. The present example was discovered near the Dyke, and is of bronze.
