Warm and cloudy. Cycled over to Fordham this morning, saw Bob at work in the orchard. Called at Bergholt Brewery to see if I could buy any old brewery wagons, but no success, as they have only one pair and a single horse left now. Less than 10 years ago they had 20.
Called at Abbott’s, the farrier on Bergholt Road. Glad to find he is very busy, and does agricultural work from as far as Fordham Place.
