Chris Stone said: “‘Methwold Fruit Farm Colony and The Birth of Brookville’ is a story of how a group of people not only survived in the harsh rural conditions of the 1890s but learnt how to thrive through hard work, frugality, and cooperation with their neighbours.

"I am really looking forward to coming to Stoke Ferry in November and telling you all about it!”
