FURTHER to our feature last week on the Flora Thompson Collection at Buckingham’s Old Gaol, principal compiler Tony Webster has this week received another parcel of goodies from the BBC Lark Rise To Candleford series.

In addition to Laura’s costume shown last week, series producer Annie Tricklebank, has now donated the dress worn by Dorcas Lane, played by actress Julia Sawalha, in the closing scenes of the final episode, shown last Sunday night.

Also received have been Thomas Brown’s Post Office hat, as worn by Mark Heap throughout the series, and a large quantity of ‘Candleford Post Office’ facsimile forms and stationery.
