Village by the Ford by Gordon Channer
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A true story of humour and escape, but without crime or violence. A family with three young children, 8, 6 and 3 years, abandon their successful life near a big city, to buy a wild but beautiful Cornish valley. Life by the small clear stream is primitive - but how many millions would love to do that if only they had the nerve to give up secure, well-ordered lives? Struggling to survive this drastic change from large urban house to tiny caravan in total isolation, the children revel in the wild new playground, their characters remoulded by a hard but wonderful existence. Life is so very different, with weekly baths in the cold clear river water and a true outside loo that can only be used with modesty after dark. A story with deep but subtle romance and a love of all things natural, of orphan baby rabbits and rearing an injured buzzard. And this is a true story.
