Day one of our visit to the U.K. In the morning we went for a walk in the village of Walgrave, Northhamptonshire. (where my son and his wife live) We visited St Peter's C of E built 1633 well before Australia was discovered. Then walked to the Baptist Chapel. We walked pasted the post office up to the old school. We enquires of a passing resident "In which direction are the shops" to which she replied " there are none, but there is a pub up the road" Next on the schedule was a walking the dogs with Marie's mum Vera around the village common fields and watched the tractor slashing. 

Had a look at the garden. This is the size of the rhubarb!

Spending time in the herb garden with Richard Marie's Dad watching him do a stock take. Next Vera took us for lunch at the Beckworth Emporium in Sywell which was wonderfull, then looked at all the local produce. We saw our first grey squirrel! From there we went to a shopping centre at Western Favell to see Tesco super store (massive). Here I experienced my first Mocha in a super hugh cup which was bought as a medium. Then we drove around Northampton City one word strikes me about this place atmosphere this place just oozes atmosphere, and finished at the "Daily Bread Shop" an organic ingredients shop. Thence to Moulton to see a genuine thatched roof and an old telephone box converted to a book exchange. We finished off the day at "the pub" called the Royal Oak for a typical pub dinner, on offer was Scampy, pork belly, Camembert, lasagna and Parmesan chicken

This will I hope be the recording of our journey to self sufficiency and the building of a christian community. I believe that we as a family have been called to Christian Agrarianism.
