misc Bill Bryson speaks to the SPAB AGM

As President of the CPRE (Campaign to Protect Rural England) Bill Bryson is more than appreciative of the built heritage of England, and as a Norfolk resident he's likely to see many windmills and windpumps in his regular routine, which made him a great choice to speak at this years SPAB AGM.

The photo shows him speaking, in a presentation that touched on why he loves England, what he wants to change about it (including the loss of front gardens, poor siting of power pylons, the loss of hedgerows, and so much litter), and a retelling of the classic joke about hiking in bear country.
