Captain Cook and a ‘loving’ Icon

August 27, 2009

This is a wonderful typo taken from the Darlington & Stockton Times.

We have been nominated by the National Parks as a living icon, as part of a quest to find people, living and dead, who most represent the culture, heritage and landscape of the National Parks, as part of the 60th anniversary celebrations of the passing of the Countryside Act.

We have been nominated alongside Captain Cook and mentioned in some fine company…weather we are considered a living or loving icon, we are just a bit honoured and best pleased.
