The village is called North Wheatley and we are in the north of Nottinghamshire, in the English Midlands. Sherwood Forest, where Robin Hood lived is about 10miles away, its a large ( by our standards ) oak forest, very popular with tourists. Wheatley means " Wheatfield ", there is a South Wheatley behind me in the picture. It has its own manor house which is difficult to photograph as a barn was built about 1780 in front of it. In North Wheatley we have no school, no shop, no phone box but we do have the pub. South Wheatley has the school, no phone box, no pub but has a shop in the old barn.
On a cold winter night, when we are all tucked up in bed, ther are about 500 of us between the 2 villages.
Mostly wheat, oilseed rape and barley is grown, although 2 of the local farmers grow strawberries for supermarkets.Very few agricultural workers live here, most people are retired or work in the nearby towns, Doncaster, Lincoln, Sheffield, Nottingham. We don't have thatched roofs, our soil is heavy clay, good for bricks and tile roofs.Field boundaries are hedges, usually hawthorn. There are several contractors who make a part living from hedge cutting, but this is seasonal, as we are not allowed to cut hedges from February to July to allow wild birds to breed.
Very quiet and dull, but I get time to build my steam engines and help run one of the biggest tractor shows in England. Phil
