Goodrest Farm


Today on my ‘Back to the Land’ project we went to Goodrest Farm on the outskirts of Kenilworth. One of the artefacts we took back was a Foot Iron, these were slipped on over shoes to protect the latter. I had found this artefact particularly emotive.

John and Brenda Semple, far right at the back of the photo, and their son Paul treated us to a fascinating account of farming from their childhood to the present day.
