Barry, Michael (male, SED fieldworker)
Shipway, James (b.1882, male, builder)
James talks about the improvement in farm workers` wages over his working life and talks about the beer brewed locally at Kennet. Winterbourne Monkton (just to the north), West Kennet (just to the southeast) and Beckhampton (just to the southwest) are nearby villages. The Lion presumably refers to a public house.
