At first things were very hard for us, we had returned to Britain with nothing, except a small amount of furniture left in storage when we set off on our voyage on board the "Lucette" We chose this place because just five minutes walk away was the cottage Lyn's grandmother had lived in.  As a child Lyn spent many summers in this village with her "granny" and the memory of those wonderful times and the fact that the Poyser family could be traced back to the 1500's in this area gave the family a new sense of belonging to the land. Eighteen grandchildren have spent their formative years in and around these walls and meadows, under the watchful loving eyes of their grandma
