Title or CaptionThe curfew tolls the knell of parting BEA, / The lowing herd winds slowly o'er the lea, / The ploughman homeward plods his weary way, / And leaves the world to darkness and to me.

Person DepictedDavies; John
NotesNews: 19 December: The Roskill commission on the siting of the third London airport recommended Cublington, Buckinghamshire, rather than Foulness on the Essex coast. Davies gave a summary of the Roskill report in Parliament. Professor Colin Buchanan objected to this decision stating that the environmental disadvantages of Cublington were many and serious. The noise damage and other loss affecting the Vale of Aylesbury and the loss of Stewkley church were harsh sacrifices.
