Letters to the Editor --
As a 'foreigner' living well beyond the bounds of Kent perhaps I may be allowed to say how much pleasure I have derived from the first issues of your Newsletter. I have found the content both interesting and informative.
I was particularly interested in Mr Gerald Cramp's article on the unusual flue-tiles from Reculver (Newsletter Number 4). Voussoir tiles have occurred in a similar context at Brixworth. They were found in association with tufa and the more conventional box flue-tiles. Their average height is 9½ inches and they taper from 7 inches to 5½ inches.
I am indebted to your contributor for valuable parallels.
Using the formula
r= bc/( a-b)
- r = inner radius of vault;
- a = greatest width of tile;
- b =shortest width of tile and
- c = overall height of tile,
I would like to wish you continued success in the future and an ever widening circulation.
