Uncle John

A Memory of Broads, The

My Grand parents lived in Hunsett Mill House around 1920-1930, Grandad, whilst I never knew him  they had the house as a tied cottage as part of his job on the farm.  He had to keep the dykes clear, and that was as least part of the funtion of the Mill.  The child in the row boat is my Uncle John who died three of four years ago.  He used to stop the cabin cruisers and offer them a cup of tea and Granny had to stop what she was doing and make it for his new friends.
