Debo Devonshire was an inspiration to me. I read that she had her own flock of sheep and had learnt to run a
sheep dog and move them round the estate. Eventually, I bought some sheep and with Sam my sheep dog went to Oxford University Farm where we both learnt to work sheep and had many happy times afterwards. I Iived in Swinbrook and had to phone Debo once a year to ask for an article to put in the parish magazine The Chronicle. She was so willing and back came a hilarious article on something like playing the crummy old organ in the church where the notes got stuck.
