John Ford will be telling us about the Adrian Bell Society. Bell, viewed as The Voice of the Countryside moved to Suffolk from London in 1920. He was first a farm pupil, then a farmer. During his 60 years in the county he wrote 25 books, most of which were based on his life & work in Suffolk. His first, Corduroy, vividly describes his early years on the land when farming depended on the horse to do what man could not. He also contributed many articles to various magazines & for 30 years his Countryman’s Notebook was a feature of the Eastern Daily Press.
