The book describes the life and times of Benjamin Castle, the author's husband David Castle's great grandfather. In 1989, the author and her husband had to turn out the attics of the old farmhouse where he had lived. They discovered masses of old records, letters, wills, documents and photos (which resulted in the start of the Castle Collection of photos). These pertained to the farm, the village and the social life, dating from the 1800s. It took 12 years to sort through this amazing information. The author realised all this information belonged to the generations who had lived and farmed there before them and wanted to tell the story of the first Castle to farm at Home Farm, so that her family, and hopefully the families to come, will have an understanding of this ancestor.
