I found this intriguing - especially as I live in London where it is never ever really dark! I loved his excuse.

Does anyone know anything about the history of lighting orders? I had a quick look using google but didn't find anything of note.

Ooops another one of mine. When they lived there they had to go down to Lane Bottom for water and carry it back up the hill.
