Ellis, Stanley (b.1926
Keene, Mrs. (b.1877, female)
Mrs. Keene describes how women and children used to plait straw for the local millinery industry. The original recording appears to have been paused on two occasions. Tring (just to the southeast of Buckland), Luton and Dunstable (both to the northeast) are nearby towns. The Rose & Crown and The Green Man presumably refer to public houses.
