Replying to LO28832 --
Swamp, eh? Spot on...North Moreton sits in a low position near the river
Thames, now surrounded by ancient ditches it was once swamp and march
land. I will respond more in due course;-)...I even have a name for the
first man of North Moreton.
Just now I want to tell you of the first morning in our ancient cottage
twenty years ago...(we now live in another house)...I was looking at river
boat spars taken from a small boat that would have ferried gods over the
Thames at a near village Long Whittenham...and where someone had cracked
the wall of mud in the roof I used occasionally to draw out a long strand
of horse hair from the material used to line the roof. Even now, nearby an
ancient horse stands alone in a field, much as he did then when a man came
up, put his hand on his flanks, gently and took some of the hair from his
great mane and tail.
Love and best wishes to you Leo Minnigh.
PS Are there still horses in the fields around your little farm?
