He describes how the villages in the Hundred competed against each other, and how he felt in a foreign land when, as a boy, he visited Sedgebarrow on Saturday mornings, his cart horses tied nose to tail in tandem. He recounts the legend of the Tibblestone itself, a story handed from man to boy since time immemorial, the holes in its sides being the impressions of a giants fingers, and tells us of the superstitions surrounding this and other landmarks, which were such an important part of life for country folk in the early years of this century.
