We scattered some of my father's ashes here in March 2013. He was Arthur Benjamin Wyldbore, b 1921.

There were no facilities for hand washing other than the dykes. The work hours on fen farms in those days was 0700 start, 1000 to 1030 dockey, 1300 to 1310 'onesies', this was ten minutes to finish off your flask of tea, or more often the bottle of cold sweet tea that many preferred. Finish at 1615 Mon to Thur, and 1600 on a Friday, a 47 hour week, for which a... Read more
