Just received an e-mail from a dealer which tells me that the the 2nd class Dover Lighthouse stamp is captioned "The UK's tallest standing Roman build" instead of what should have been "The UK's tallest standing Roman building" as per the publicity image. It is apparently correct on the stamp PHQ postcard.

Anybody got these to check? Wonder if the error is on counter sheets and in Presentation Packs? If they are all wrong - is it really an error (in the philatelist's sense)?

Will there be a reprinting? Or just left as an oddity?

The stamp on the FDC from Tallents house is The UK's tallest standing Roman build.

I expect it will stay as and as you say yes its an error but perhaps not a ' stamp error' if they have all been produced with the wrong wording.
