It is a lovely time capsule of the past for which we should be so grateful for the time and effort put by many people and the Trust, to allow us to experience it. It is more poignant for me becuasse my late father, John / Jack Allen Hayes lived as a child in the Mr Straw's House between 1913 and 1919 approximately before the Straw family. When I took him to visit the house in July 1998 the curator and staff were so helpful in showing round and sharing his early experiences there as a child. And the local radio presenter who broadcast news of his visit seemed really enthusiastic too. We were made to feel very welcome. Malcolm Hayes
