  • Description

    William talks about various jobs he has done, including hedging, ditching, laying drains and thatching. The original recording appears to have been interrupted on one occasion. Vernon's Hook is, presumably, a local landmark and Barton Hall is an estate just to the west of Sutton on the Hill.
