We are sad to report the death, on 2 August, of Peter Rothwell. In addition to being a regular visitor to Lundy for many years, he served on the LFS committee from 1999 to 2005 and had recently retired as the Landmark Trust's librarian, looking after the libraries in each of the Lundy properties.

Peter's funeral will be held at Barnstaple Crematorium at 3.00pm on Friday 23 August followed by refreshments. The Lundy Field Society will be represented. Donations in memory of Peter, to benefit Lundy, will be by retiring collection at the service or by care of funeral directors: A D Williams, 31 Portland Street, Ilfracombe (01271 866332). Family flowers only.

Peter was a talented artist, producing An Island Sketchbook and illustrating many Lundy books including The Lundy Companion. He also authored books about the island including the story of the Lundy Granite Company and a novel Ancient Sunlight. With the late Ann Westcott he ran the Westwell sketching holidays over many summers, based in Millcombe House.

With Ann, he was a 'Tibbettan' staying in Tibbetts on a regular basis and many of his Lundy artworks were drawn and painted during stays there.
