The Community is a fellowship wherein each man & woman should find a place of significant service & creative living
Grovehill, Piccotts End, Woodhall Farm and Phoenix
This time line is drawn to track the history of the area that we know as Grovehill.
It attempts to trace the Procession of people from the first families who walked onto the land and found that it could provide for their most basic needs to the changes made to land as human settlement and agriculture develops.
It is mostly about the man who works the soil, not to make any particular point, but because this determined, strong man,
with his old rough clothes,
selling his labour
and the fruits of his labouring to feed his family,
is the image that has travelled with me throughout.
The question that constantly emerges is that of who reaps the benefit most from the fruits of his labour.
