  1. This looks like such a great event. I visited various archives in Berkshire including MERL and the Berkshire Record Office when I was writing a novel, Miss Boston and Miss Hargreaves, about my queer grandmother, Rene Hargreaves. She arrived in Lambourn Berkshire to work as a land-girl for a sole small-holder Elsie Boston in 1940. They lived together ever after though they were evicted from the farm in the wartime land efficiency drive. They ended up settling in Cornwall. I hope your event goes well!
