Pizza Ovens from ACR Stoves Q&A with Vicky Naylor

Last year saw ACR Stoves launch a hugely successful new range of pizza ovens, consisting of the Bravo and Vita models.
Now, with the British Summer on its way, Vicky Naylor, General Manager at ACR Stoves, offers her expert advice on pizza ovens and answers your most common questions.

What can you cook in a pizza oven and how?
Wood-fired pizza ovens are a must have in any outdoor kitchen. There’s nothing quite like a wood-fired pizza with a bubbly yet crispy crust, oozing melted cheese, fresh herbs, and an array of toppings to suit every taste. Pizza ovens are not only fun and easy to use, but they deliver a truly authentic flavour and texture that can’t be achieved in a traditional oven.

The advantages of a wood-fired pizza oven go beyond just cooking pizza. The possibilities of what to cook in your pizza oven are endless; from side dishes such as homemade bread and vegetables, to
fish and roasted meats and even desserts. You just need to regulate the heat according to what you are cooking. For example, bread would require a medium hot oven, lasagne would need a cooler oven
otherwise it would burn, and meat and fish are often best wrapped in foil and then slow roasted on a low heat. Roasted vegetables are great when placed on a cast iron griddle plate and placed into a
medium heat oven. Pizzas on the other hand, will need to be cooked directly onto the base of a hot oven.

Desserts are best cooked on a low heat oven, so the sugar doesn’t burn – the first time I cooked a lemon meringue pizza, it practically incinerated the meringue, but I soon learned that if
you part cook the pizza base (about 1.5 minutes) and then bring it out, add the lemon and the meringue before returning it to the oven for about another minute, it’s far better!

Where should a grill/pizza oven be placed in a garden?
While the location of an outdoor grill or pizza oven is a homeowner’s personal choice, it is important to ensure that your outdoor oven is no closer than 10 feet from the entrance to your
home, and that there is ample ventilation for your oven to prevent smoke inhalation for anyone nearby. It is also vital that you choose a location that is away from flammable materials or
structures such as a fence or shed.

Preparation, cooking, and dining should all happen within the same reasonable space to remain comfortable. It therefore makes sense to place your outdoor oven close to your indoor kitchen, so utilities
such as plumbing can be shared, as well as the convenience of easy access to ingredients, crockery, and cutlery for example.

It is advisable to avoid locating your outdoor oven under structures such as a gazebo to ensure the smoke can easily disperse. We would always recommend that you keep your oven covered when not in use to protect it from the weather.

ACR Stoves Pizza Oven – ‘The Best Bits’

Log fired, Italian design and European manufacture.

Reaches 500°C in 30 minutes.

Premium insulation to retain heat.

Chamotte oven base for the ultimate in authentic crispiness.

Steel outer body with stainless steel inner, complete with insulation, for greater heat retention.

Versatile – these pizza ovens can also be used for roasting, slow cooking and a host of additional delicious delicacies.

How much does a pizza oven cost and is it worth it?
Prices can vary significantly with pizza ovens but as with most things in life, you get what you pay for. They are the perfect social way of entertaining for friends and family. Our Bravo oven
starts at £590.00 and our Vita Pizza Oven starts at £755.00, both offering superb economical and efficient cooking!

Cooking with wood-fired ovens is faster and more flavourful and because the food cooks faster, more of the nutritional value is left than with conventional cooking methods.

Pizza ovens offer a great way to cut energy costs, as instead of using electricity or gas, you use only wood to produce the heat necessary to cook. They are also a great back up in the event of your indoor oven not working or in a power cut, you still have way to cook a hot meal.

How should you clean a pizza stone?
The stone bases in ACR Stoves Pizza Ovens shouldn’t need to be cleaned as they can reach temperatures of 500°C in 30 minutes.
Therefore, the heat will burn off most residues. If any stubborn substances remain, then scrape lightly using a specialised pizza
stone brush. You can also make a paste with 1 tablespoon of baking soda and water to spot-treat the area.

[

How should you clean a pizza oven?
Wait until your outdoor pizza oven has completely cooled before you start cleaning. The outside can be wiped over with a slightly damp
cloth and then dried to prevent any rusting. The inside will need the ashes scraping out using an ash rake and a fireplace shovel, or similar tools. Collect the ash and add to your compost bin.

How much does it cost to run a pizza oven?
I would suggest that you would need approximately 4 kiln dried logs, split into 3 pieces to both start the fire and maintain
enough heat to cook around 6 pizzas. A bag of kiln dried logs is around £11 for 8 logs, so you would need approximately half of the bag for 6 pizzas, so about £5.50, making it less than £1 per pizza.

Honour the Legend in Your Life with Windmeul Cellar’s Premium ‘The Legend Collection’

March 2022, Cape Town – The release of Windmeul Cellar’s premium wines’ 2019 vintage again stands testament to the Paarl-based wine producer’s track record of creating exceptional wines.

Windmeul Cellar’s release of its latest The Legend Collection (2019)

The Legend Collection’s Chenin Blanc 2019 and Pinotage 2019 succeed vintages that consistently achieved top ratings at the likes of the Michelangelo Wine Awards, Veritas, John Platter’s Wine Guide, ABSA Top 10 Pinotage and Standard Bank Chenin Blanc Top 10 competitions. For decades, Windmeul Cellar has secured its place as a top wine producer and is in no measure planning to slow their momentum in delivering wines that are both versatile and distinguished.

“With 78 years of wine production to look back on, we can confidently say that Windmeul Cellar is an experienced hand at making wines of remarkable quality,” says cellar master, Danie Marais. “When it comes to our elite range, you don’t have to take our word to prove its quality. We believe in taking credit when it is due and are proud to place good value on our premium wines.” Marais has worked in the wine industry for more than 30 years. This is his 23rd year at the reigns of the Windmeul Cellar team.

Windmeul Cellar produces three wine ranges where The Legend Collection is the most high-end. The wines were initially created in 2010 to pay tribute to those who continue to inspire others to initiate and experience life’s splendour without compromise. From parents to childhood role models, the meticulous winemaking process of the limited Collection reflects the appreciation of day-to-day heroes who merits to be celebrated.

“A lot of heart went into making these wines,” adds senior winemaker, Abraham van Heerden. “If they can be experienced as a special keepsake or gift for the day-to-day ‘legend’, then we are on the right track.”

The Legend Collection was further inspired by the late veteran Springbok player and a previous Windmeul Cellar director, Theunis Petrus Daniel (TPD) Briers (1929 – 2018). The range underpins Briers’ contributions to the development of an adored sport as well as South Africa’s wine sector. Marais thought it ideal for prolonging Briers’ legacy with this high-level wine range.

“Much like those who grew up admiring their mentors or idols, I have always followed Briers’ success,” says Marais. “We wanted to emboss Briers’ honour in a wine that mirrors the quality of his influence in various fields. It made sense to extend this sentiment to individuals who continue to make an impact on those who look up to them. May it be your work colleague, a good friend or family member.”

About the Wine:

Recalled as one of the ‘Windmeul crown jewels’, the Chenin Blanc 2019 is a full-bodied white varietal with honeyed notes adding more character to its flavour profile. The wine, obtained from Windmeul Cellar’s Reserve Chenin’s ‘Best Barrels Selection’, acquired a delicate acid balance, underlining its unique, slightly savoury taste. Think oak spices subtly blanketed under green mango, quince, and melon with fresh ginger aromas. Made from warm climate Chenin grapes, the wine shows complex characteristics that subtly dissolve into a concentrated, savoury palate accustomed to older vines. Perfect on its own when chilled, the wine also pairs well with seafood, ceviche, crisp salads to a diverse canapé menu.

The Legend Collection’s ‘Best Barrels Selection’ Pinotage 2019 originates from Windmeul Cellar’s Reserve Pinotage’s barrels. Since its 2006 harvest, the Pinotage Reserve featured among the 20 best performing wines at the ABSA Top 10 Pinotage competition for 13 vintages consecutively. The Reserve ranked among the Top 10 wines eight times.

The Legend Collection’s Pinotage 2019 matured for 18 months in new small French oak barrels, factoring in the wine’s well-rounded taste, proving once again the appeal of Pinotage as a celebrated South African varietal. With extraordinary keepsake potential, its durable structure allows it to mature for 10 years. The wine’s bold palate lifted with a tinge of acidity adds to its lingering finish. Try it with game or venison, especially when included in traditional recipes shared with friends and family.

Editor’s Note: About Theunis Petrus Daniel (TPD) Briers (1929 – 2018)
Veteran Springbok player Theunis Petrus Daniel (TPD) Briers, also known as Theunis, was one such hero who helped put the stamp of approval on South Africa’s rugby vocation, as far back as the 1950s. Briers helped shift expectations and mindsets when the impossible could only be overcome by tangible proof of the possible.

Briers was born in 1929 in Agter-Paarl. He started playing professional rugby at a very young age and was soon dubbed the ‘Pearl of Paarl’ as he helped to hold the town’s flag high at national tournaments. His track record includes playing for the Western Province, after which he participated in test rugby for the Springboks. Although his sporting career was short-lived, a testament to his legacy was his performance playing right wing during the 1955 to 1956 rugby tour against the British Lions and All Blacks.

Thankfully, my own products worked on me and my acne community of over 500,000 followers saw my huge development. They eventually encouraged me to launch my own skincare line.

BOOK: The Cheap Handyman: True (and Disastrous) Tales from a [Home Improvement Expert] Guy Who Should Know Better, by B.S. Harris

About the Book:

This Old House meets #HomeImprovementFails in this collection of laugh-out-loud essays, perfect for fans of Nick Offerman, CarTalk, or The Red Green Show..

“This book is all the fix-it you need for your hurt home improvement ego.” —Harrison Scott Key, Thurber-prize winning author of The World’s Largest Man

Meet Brian Harris, a (mostly) retired, self-proclaimed jack of all trades with a penchant for DIY and inventive money-saving schemes. Armed with a soldering gun, his trusty nine-foot ladder, and of course the handyman’s secret weapon—duct tape—Brian’s projects start out as simple chores: trim a tree branch, stain the cedar siding on his home…but all too often they end in costly disaster.

Sometimes he’s trying to do the right thing, like the time he wrecked his pool while saving some baby ducks. Often, he channels his inner MacGyver: he once taped his hockey skate back together so he could finish his rec-league game, only to get suspended for falling on the referee when it broke (again). But usually he’s just being, well, cheap! Like the time he inadvertently destroyed a $295 car key fob because he wouldn’t pay the (outrageous) $10 fee to have the battery professionally replaced.

In The Cheap Handyman, Brian anthologizes his hard-won wisdom, teaching us how (not) to cut down a tree, what to do if a stray cat has kittens in your HVAC system, three very incorrect uses for duct tape, the manifold hazards of pool maintenance, and more.

Filled with unforgettable true stories from the everyday life of an average guy just trying to save a few bucks, The Cheap Handyman is a delightful tribute to anyone who has ever thought, “Sure! I can do that!”

About the Author:

B.S. Harris is a father and husband, now retired from his “day job” but still finding ways to fill his days as a cheap handyman. He grew up in an average, hard-working home and was fortunate enough to earn a post-secondary degree. He is an amateur athlete and musician, and a lifelong motorcycle enthusiast. He and his very understanding family live in Southern Ontario, Canada.

The Complete Book of Ducati, 2nd Edition: Every Model Since 1946 ∙ By Ian Falloon ∙ Published May 31, 2022


From sporting single-cylinder bikes of the 1950s to high-performance sportbikes of today, this updated edition of The
Complete Book of Ducati Motorcycles showcases Ducati’s entire output.
Though legendary today, Ducati motorcycles began rather modestly, selling
motorized bicycles to impoverished residents of post-World War II Italy.
Today, Ducati is Europe’s premier manufacturer of high-performance street
motorcycles whose recent sales have risen year after year. Its svelte, hyperaccelerating sportbikes are two-wheeled wonders fluent in the language of
speed.
The Complete Book of Ducati Motorcycles, 2nd Edition details the Bolognabased company’s amazing chronology, from the 1950s to present day.
Presented chronologically and in encyclopedic form with gorgeous
photography and insights from Ducati expert Ian Falloon, the book offers
motorcycle enthusiasts a close look at the craftsmanship, power, and beauty
of these extraordinary motorcycles. The book features all the motorcycles
from Ducati’s storied history through 2022, including:
o Sporting singles of the 1950s and ’60s
o The groundbreaking Desmodromic 750 Super Sport
o The iconic Mike Hailwood Replica
o The stunning, Superbike-dominating 916
o Today’s hip Scrambler and epic Panigale superbike
This information-packed, lushly illustrated oversize volume is a must-have for all Ducatisti and a great gift for any
motorcycle enthusiast.
Ian Falloon was born in New Zealand and studied engineering and music at Victoria University, Wellington. After a
motorcycle accident brought an end to his career as a symphony orchestra oboist, he began writing articles about
motorcycles for magazines including Classic Bike, Cycle World, Motorcyclist, Two Wheels, Motorcycle Sport,
and Australian Motorcycle News. His first book, The Ducati Story, has run to several editions and has been published in
three languages. The success of The Ducati Story led to a series of Ducati books and histories of Honda, Kawasaki, BMW,
and Moto Guzzi motorcycles including Motorbooks titles The Complete Book of Ducati, The Complete Book of Moto
Guzzi, The Complete Book of Triumph Motorcycles, and The Art of Ducati. With an interest and passion spanning
decades, Ian now concentrates on collecting and restoring older Italian motorcycles, particularly Ducati, MV Agusta,
Laverda, and Moto Guzzi. He lives in Melbourne, Australia, and is ably supported in his projects by his family

INTRODUCING THE MASTERS OF SALMON – SMOKIN’ BROTHERS
THE NEXT GENERATION OF SALMON SMOKERS

With a signature slice and a unique smoking process, award-winning brand Smokin’ Brothers is redefining the smoked salmon market.

The next generation of salmon smokers include Vincenzo, Alessandro and Iacopo, the Smokin’ Brothers, who are on a mission to transform the way we eat smoked salmon and offer consumers nationwide a gastronomic taste experience.
Originally from Italy, Vincenzo, Alessandro and Iacopo, are three friends who share a passion for good food and a commitment to sustainable living.

Crafted in the heart of the Cotswold’s, the Smokin’ Brothers smokehouse is truly unique. The salmon itself is sourced from the last family-owned salmon farm in Scotland, which has strict standards, as much as any organic certified farm would. This is essential for Smokin Brothers, as the quality and sustainability of the raw material is a key element in their process.

Following the designs of a traditional Norwegian smokehouse, each side of salmon is hung and smoked in a blend of beech, oak and juniper using a ventilation system to emulate the traditional Nordic winds. With a constant flow of freshly pumped smoke steadily working its way around the salmon to infuse each piece.

Each side of salmon is then sliced using the Smokin’ Brothers signature sashimi slice, offering consumers the chance to enjoy the rich flavours and textures with every bite.

Smokin Brothers produce their salmon to work with people, they do not work with huge corporate companies, or boards of investors, that own the huge salmon production farms in Scotland.

Due to the unique smoking process, each part of the salmon gives customers a different flavour. The belly is rich and buttery, while the tail, with its lean flesh has an extra smoky flavour.

Smokin’ Brothers is the first smoked salmon brand in the world to create a full recyclable and compostable packaging, ensuring that sustainability is at the heart of what they do. The brand is dedicated to environmental responsibility and sources its salmon from the glacial Scottish depths.

The Smokin’ Brothers salmon is now widely recognised by many with chefs including Adam Handling, Gaetano Farucci and Ottolenghi championing its flavours. The full range is available to purchase via the website through www.smokin-brothers.com and prices start from £28. Additionally, Smokin’ Brothers offers weekly, fortnightly and monthly subscription boxes, delivering fresh smoked salmon straight to your door.

Vincenzo appeared on Gordon Ramseys new Future Food Stars, on BBC 1.

Cheese for Dad – NEW Father’s Day Gift Selections from Paxton & Whitfield

In its 225th birthday year, the UK’s oldest cheesemonger, Paxton & Whitfield has released three, new contemporary cheese collections – designed to be the perfect Father’s Day gifts.

Father’s Day gift hunters can select from the Father’s Day Cheese Treats, the Cheese for Beer or the June Cheese Treats to celebrate Dads in the UK.

Dan Bliss, cheese buyer for Paxton & Whitfield, says: “Father’s Day hasn’t quite been the same over the last two years, so for a restriction-free celebration with our Dads this year, we’ve created this great selection. It includes our new gift pack, the ‘Cheese for Beer’ box. Cheese and beer pairing has grown in popularity over the years and there’s a great history to cheese and beer being enjoyed together in the UK. From the tradition of monasteries creating their own cheese and beer, to using beer to wash and preserve cheese, all the way through to the classic marriage of beer and cheese being enjoyed in a ploughman’s during harvest times. Cheese and beer is a classic, that Dad can now enjoy on the 19th June.”

All the gift packs feature re-usable ice packs and 100% sheeps’ wool insulation for a chilled delivery and a free Paxton & Whitfield gift card; printed with the customer’s personal message.

Everything listed is available from www.paxtonandwhitfield.co.uk.

“Whilst wine and cheese may be thought of as the classic pairing, cheese and beer can be equally delicious. With many different styles of cheese and beer, the possibilities are endless.

Believe It by Maddox Jones


“Maddox Jones continue on an upward trajectory to establish himself as an artist to watch, built on his emotive melodies and heartfelt messages.”- 1883 Magazine

Maddox Jones’ debut album ‘Believe It’ is a vigorous and heartening remodel of alt-pop, perfect to counterbalance a time of great uncertainty.

British singer-songwriter Maddox Jones continues to evolve his musical change of direction with his eagerly anticipated debut album, Believe It, scheduled for release on the 8th of April 2022 on Radikal Records. Having spent the start of his career playing in bands and collaborating with other artists, supporting the likes of Indie Rock icons such as The Killers and Placebo, Jones uses his past experience to cultivate this brand new alt-pop record.

Tracks bursting with vibrant colour, Believe It, is an uplifting and hopeful album where Jones delves into themes of becoming himself, falling in love as well as overcoming and battling with addiction. The album blends summery synth-washed pop with raw, stripped back, honest tracks, showcasing his singer-songwriter abilities. As it decisively twists and meanders along beautifully vulnerable lows and highs worthy of rolling down the car windows and singing down the back roads, Jones creates an album that goes quite a bit deeper than that, illustrating that there is more to discover beneath its surface. With tracks produced by the talented Dave Crawford and Louis Souyave, Believe It combines great songwriting with elements of dance and pop to new levels, creating a feel good 12 track record centered on personal growth.

Believe It includes three astounding singles, two of which were released during the course of last year and the current single Ready to Be Better, released on Friday the 18th February. The album opens with, Ready to Be Better, a moment of reflection and an awakening of the yearning to amend past mistakes. Flowing with catchy pop hooks, Ready to Be Better, opens up the album with a bang creating the perfect introduction for what’s to come. “I decided to write a song of exactly where I was at at that time. I looked at the time on my phone took a deep breath and let the words pour out of me.”

Filled with grooving baselines, a nod to Nile Rodger’s style of choppy guitars, and big gated-reverb drum fills, the exuberant Somewhere There’s a Plan (Believe It), puts a modern spin on 70’s Funk – a classic feel-good dance single that oozes with infectious melody. Written during lockdown, Jones’ wanted to bring a sense of elevating joy and assurance for these unprecedented times.

Make Me Yours unveils a darker, more mystical element in Jones’ songwriting. “Put your hands on my heart / You can leave your mark on me” Filled with allure this dance-pop anthem creates the seductive atmosphere of dimly lit strobes and smoky dance floors. Jones gives a few words on the track – “I’ve been discovering more and more that the dynamics in a relationship are not linear. One person is not in control, and there is so much to be learnt from being vulnerable and honest with your partner. This song is ultimately about letting go and trusting your partner is going to hold you when you need it most”. Other notable tracks on the album such as Magic, an energetic feel-good track about being hypnotized by someone’s trance, God Damn I’m Happy, a sweet light hearted love song and Power, an empowering song about really believing in your worth underscore that this deep album is loaded with many other potential future Singles.

Jones started his solo venture back in 2020 with the critically acclaimed EP, Headspace, reaching #4 in the iTunes Singer Songwriter Chart. A year after it’s release, Jones’ backed up the initial success of his debut EP, as his single Can’t Wait for the Summer hit the #1 spot on the same chart. Having already built a career that included four Top 40 hits as well as playing at Reading and Leeds Festival and Glastonbury with The Departure, Jones on his own has now gone on to being tipped as One to Watch in 2022 by BBC Introducing Northampton in addition to achieving #5 on the Commercial Pop and Upfront Club Chart with Make Me Yours.

Jardinopia Tool Garland Watering Can set

The Jardinopia handmade decorative garden tool garlands are produced using sustainably sourced yam wood and recycled metal. They are designed to decorate your potting shed, tool shed, garage,
conservatory or anywhere you wish to add a little bit of fun and a talking point to. This garland has the following 6 tools included: – rake, hoe, shovel, watering can, bucket, hand fork.

The garland can also be hung outside (although the yam wood may fade as it has not been treated and is a natural product and will react accordingly when exposed to the elements).

You can also add wire LED fairy lights to the garland (not included here) should you wish, to add that extra special sparkle! They also look great hung on beams or over fireplaces and hearths.

The garland is currently strung on a length of approximately 5 feet (60 inches) of natural jute string, but can very easily be restrung on any length or colour you may want to use as an alternative. You can even add our various tool garlands together to make one long garland!

The hand tools themselves are approximately 11cm long x 5cm wide, with the watering can and bucket approximately 10cm wide x 7cm tall. Sizes may vary slightly as they are all individually produced by hand.

The Jardinopia garden tool garlands make for a unique gift for any occasion for gardeners and help brighten up any space you may want to hang them in.

Jardinopia have reduced the use of packaging wherever possible with this product, to reduce their impact on the environment, so they will arrive simply bagged and boxed. They have 2 versions of the Tool Garland
currently to offer.

Father’s Day (6/19) is coming up fast and if you’re unsure of what to gift the men in your life, whether it’s your dad, brother, uncle or husband, I’m writing to share a delicious wine option (stay with me) for the booze-loving dad and history buff!

1924 wines was founded in 1924—right in the middle of Prohibition—which they honor by making their wines their own way. The 1924 Double Black Bourbon Barrel Aged Cabernet Sauvignon specifically represents this rebellious time as it is not traditional to age wine in bourbon barrels; this method dials up the caramel and toasty oak notes, and adds to the bold flavor. It’s classically structured, with black cherry fruit and tannins that give the wine some heft and a sweet taste you have to try!

You can buy the 1924 Double Black Bourbon Barrel Aged Cabernet Sauvignon for under $20 at your local liquor store, major retailers across the nation or Wine.com (which is affiliate-friendly) for ultimate gifting convenience.

Father’s Day gift guide – five top-rated sports books for Dad

If you’re looking for a gift for Dad this Father’s Day, here’s five books he’s sure to love. Each has featured in the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Awards, the world’s most valuable literary sports-writing prize. Graham Sharpe, who set up the Awards 34 years ago, chooses five sporting greats:

1. True Blue: The Oxford Boat Race Mutiny by Daniel Topolski. From £8.00 available from Amazon image here
2. Fever Pitch by Nick Hornby. From £9.99 available from Waterstones. Image here
3. The Miracle Of Castel Di Sangro by Joe McGinniss. From £9.78 available from Blackwell’s. Image here
4. It’s Not About The Bike: My Journey Back to Life by Lance Armstrong. From £10.19 available from WHSmith. Image here
5. Swell, A Waterbiography by Jenny Landreth. From £9.51 available from Blackwell’s. Image here

Five great books from the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Awards, by Graham Sharpe

Our first winner in 1989 set the bar high for future years, entitled ‘True Blue’ and telling the dramatic story of its sub-title, The Oxford Boat Race Mutiny. Written by brilliant Oxford and Olympic team rowing coach, Daniel Topolski, and talented thriller writer Patrick Robinson, this is the story of a rowing rebellion in probably the world’s best-known water-borne race, which resulted in the American mutineers quitting and leaving their inexperienced replacements up a creek without a proverbial paddle. A thoroughly deserving winner which became a must-read tome.

Nick Hornby’s career took off as ‘Fever Pitch’ created a genre of its own. Was it a novel? An autobiography? A ‘faction’? This tale of one man’s devotion to his favourite football team was about Hornby and Arsenal, but could have been about myself and Luton Town – or you and your own favourite club. A phenomenal break-through book.

My own favourite sports book, ‘The Miracle of Castel Di Sangro’ by American writer Joe McGinniss, is an incredible tale of achievement, corruption, and tragedy at an obscure, lower-division Italian football club, told by a man who experienced all of those elements at first-hand. It is the finest book about sport I have ever been privileged to read.

‘It’s Not About The Bike’, co-authored by Lance Armstrong and Sally Jenkins was, at the time, felt to be an inspirational story, but as was subsequently remarked “The book now stands as a testament to Armstrong’s capacity to delude himself and deceive his fans.” It remains a compelling read.

Jenny Landreth’s excellent book, ‘Swell’ became and remained a particular favourite of mine. The quality and originality of the subject matter shone a light on a previously unchronicled aspect of swimming’s history. It explains entertainingly how swimming in the 19th century was almost exclusively a male domain, but how some liquid-loving suffragettes eventually managed to demand and achieve a watery equality. In the process of immersing herself in the story she brought it to the attention of many – including Jo Brand, who declared: “If you love swimming you’ll love this. If you hate swimming, you’ll still love this.”
