An extract taken from The Sky Sweepers, a biography by Constance Mary Beckett, 1995:
“We transferred our bedding, kit and personal belongings to the delightful, airy room at The Lodge that had been the lounge in peace-time….I remember one morning I woke up early and listened, enchanted, to the dawn chorus….I wondered through the garden, inhaling the morning air, marvelling at the song of the birds, the perfume of the flowers…”
