Griff Rhys Jones joins anniversary reading of Arthur Ransome book - BBC News

Well-known names will read an Arthur Ransome sailing novel in one go at the setting where it was written 80 years ago. The novel tells the tale of three youngsters who accidently sail out to sea in The Goblin from Pin Mill and end up in The Netherlands. It takes place at Pin Mill Sailing Club, at Chelmondiston on the River Orwell estuary. As a boy, Jones said he used visit Hamford Water in Essex, which was the setting for another Ransome title, The Secret Water, and he is intrigued by his role working for the British secret service in Russia. The book is the seventh in the author's Swallows & Amazons series of children's sailing stories. Source:
