A CHILDHOOD OF SUMMER HOLIDAYS AT PETER’S FARM, MARLDON
The following memoir was written by Mr. Basil Sutcliffe, now 93, when he retired in 1976. As he says at the beginning, it recalls his annual visits in the Summer holidays to his grandparents Richard and Sarah Jane Stranger at Peter’s Farm, for the 16 or 17 years from when he was born. The memoir therefore covers the period from 1916 to 1932/33, when the Stranger family left the farm following the sale of the Compton Castle Estate.
