Honiton legend remembered...

Thanks to a fantastic response from readers, the Midweek Herald is this week taking a look back at the life of Arnold Chick.

Mr Chick, who worked for George Blay and lived in woods at Offwell, was one of Honiton’s greatest post-war characters.

He was immortalised in 1979 by a young Chris Canniford.

All will be revealed in this week’s Herald - out on Wednesday.
