Francis, W. Nelson (male, SED fieldworker)
Allday, William (b.1889, male, retired farm labourer)
William talks about his work on numerous local dykes. The original recording appears to have been paused on one occasion. March is a town just to the southwest of Outwell and Forty Foot refers to the dyke of the same name which runs to the south of March between the Old Nene and the Old Bedford rivers.
