Rural Leicestershire


Home on the farm

[Evan's farm]

The Rickyard at Evans' farm, where our interviewee's father worked. Evans' grandson still works there.

Farming was one of the mainstays of the rural economy. Our interviewee's father was a cowman who worked on the farm pictured above and the family lived in a tied cottage close to the farm.
