Maggie Smith sparks interest in Storrington

Following Maggie Smith’s interview on Friday night’s Graham Norton Show (30 October), this website received a record peak in visitors.

During the interview Maggie Smith mentioned that she occasionally shops at Waitrose in Storrington and lives in a neighbouring village.  She is playing “The Lady in the Van” in the film adaptation of the Alan Bennett play based on a true story.  The real “Lady in the Van”, Mary Shepherd, previously lived at St. Josephs Abbey, Greyfriars Lane when it was a convent and school.
