"A cold February wind below grey scudding clouds blows over the rain scoured clay ploughed fields. With a promise of snow, the fields at old Tom Smith’s farm are ready to give up their secrets. In the grey morning light, the rain has undercut and varnished little treasures to be found by the sharp eyed walker. A Georgian Halfpenny, broken clay pipe stems discarded by a farm labourer all those years ago, a Victorian lead musket ball and a Greenstone axe head? never touched by human hands for thousands of years.
All reflect the river of life that has crossed over the land. Land that has been claimed in ownership by numerous individuals who have only been, or will ever be - temporary custodians.
