One comment on “Mr Jonathan Graves

  1. Dear Mr Graves,
    I am researching family history for a cousin whose family have lived at Mitchell Hill Farm. My Uncle William Humphreys was thought to have been posted there with the RAF during WW2 for the construction of a ‘Dummy Airfield’ I have found crop marks from an areal photo, which would appear to back this up. I wondered if you knew any more of this aspect of your farm’s history in particular, but I would also be interested in any other general history of the farm. Do you know what would the be producing during the war years? I have a photo of Uncle Bill haymaking on the farm but we know very little else.
    Hoping you can give me any more little snippets of information,
    With Thanks,
    Pam Bates
