Pavements to Ploughed Fields

Pavements to Ploughed Fields

by Len Brown

In September 1939 Len Brown was evacuated from the East End to Fen Farm, Blo Norton, on the Norfolk-Suffolk border. From near starvation he came, as he saw it, to a land of plenty.

‘The cornfield at the back of the farmhouse stretched away into the distance and the apples were hanging in bunches from the trees…. I just sat there fascinated by what I could see and wondered whether it was all a dream.’

It was not a dream, and years of very hard work followed, work that he remembered and recorded to produce a wonderful picture of life on a Norfolk farm over fifty years ago.
