Although the article is about Ebberston, found the article fascinating, especially the passage on the Miller's daughter .....


'The Miller used to say his daughter carried a ton of potatoes in her mouth, because this was the price of false teeth worn by her. She was the first in the village to indulge in such a luxury'
