Letter: In a nutshell

From Mr Peter Hurcomb

Sir: Duff Hart-Davis's conundrum over finding walnut shells within his walls (Weekend: 18 November) may be explained by the use (so I have been told) of nutshells as insulation by builders even during relatively recent times. As a chartered architect, I have seen them in Victorian construction.

Yours faithfully,

Peter Hurcomb
