    in Cornwall they watched the manifestation of their dream a 44 foot gaff cutter called Amelie Rose take to the water for the very first time We were fascinated to discover what inspires a couple to undertake a project like this and to hear a little about the burgeoning Pilot Cutter scene in the UK so we spoke to Nick and Melisa at their base in Poole Harbour to find out more Read more Amelie Rose s Dorset Apple Cake We love Dorset and never want to live anywhere else Part of the reason is that any county that chooses this stunning cake as it s county dish has got to be a winner Dorset also has the cheeriest County Flag of any we know but that s a different tale so let s get back to the cake Actually cake is a bit of a misnomer this is more a pudding that you can hold We mostly make it in the Autumn when there s always tons of windfall apples lying around in our village It should end up moist and just a tad crumbly with an almost scone texture but as long as it s nice and appley who cares Read more Amelie Rose brings London to a standstill twice At precisely 1400 on Monday 29th August there was a traffic jam in the vicinity of the Mayors office on the South Bank and the Tower of London to the North This was caused as it is on a moderately regular basis by Tower Bridge opening to let a boat into London Pool But this wasn t some over sized gin palace or cruise liner coming to moor alongside HMS Belfast nor even a Thames Barge carrying guests on a cruise up the Thames nope not that This
