Donated by Mr Dyball’s son Jeffery, these nine diaries from 1952-1980 are a description of farming methods, both arable (barley, oats, wheat, sainfoin, beet) and livestock (cattle,sheep, and chickens), weather conditions and the life of a farming family of the period. They give details of the numbers of pheasants, partridges, rabbits etc bagged on shoots. They describe farming practices at Mill Farm, and Delles Farm, Park Road. The farmhouse itself is now a private property called Two Mills.
