My notes said, ‘tablet on side of building’, and as Old Oxted consists of pretty much a single street, I reckoned we’d have a decent chance of finding it. So we parked up, the dog and I made a couple of passes up and down the street with no success, after which we embarked on Plan B – local knowledge.
So many thanks to Dave, not because of his local knowledge (he had heard of the plaque, but was unaware of its location),…
…but because at the time I was beginning to doubt its very existence and he ensured I took one further, this time successful, look.
And no, I cannot explain why I had missed it previously, but I am very pleased that I didn’t give up! Perseverance, folks, without which, well, this would be a smaller website!
