Yesterday I presented my talk on Brunel to the Kings Langley Probus Club. For an association of retired professional men, many of whose members are in their eighties, they are a sprightly group. I have spoken there twice before, and on each occasion I have found them to be lively but attentive, and knowledgeable but generous in their appreciation. They ask questions which are searching and intelligent. I think that of the nearly 100 groups I have spoken to over the last four years, they are one of the associations that have given me the most pleasure in their reception.
If one adds to the Probus Club the presence in Kings Langley of the excellent Dalling & Co Delicatessen in the High Street, where I had both breakfast and lunch yesterday, then visits to that town measure very highly in my personal pleasure-index of travelling around the Home Counties.
