Description: Unlike her grandmother, who was happier out in the garden with a scythe, Edna Clatworthy is a homemaker. She likes housework, decorating and painting, and the familiarity of a place she knows. She was brought up on a farm at Heasley Mill, an only child but with several cousins around. After she left school she worked at home. She was getting older, going out more, to dances and Young Farmers' events. She met her husband, Fred, at a gymkhana and moved to his family farm at Withypool.
