FIELD NAMES OF MAIDENCOMBE: 'TOM BOX'
This is the first field name video diary of 'Tom Box' and a tantalizing glimpse of bygone decades here in Maidencombe. The 'Finger' field or 'Box' field as I knew it, turns out to have been named after Tom Box, one of the residents who had an allotment here in the forties and fifties.
Grateful thanks to Alan and Bob Hunt for retrieval of this field name and supporting history.
Much information was gleaned from a meeting on November 13th where Alan Hunt and his brother Bob exchanged knowledge with Jim Campbell and his reservoir of knowledge gained from Captain Bill, Harry Nickels and Hiley Edwards (senior).
