Charlie Flindts exciting new book, available now. A diary of Charlie and Hazel Flindt’s farm; 920 acres of heavy land on the National Trust-owned estate at Hinton Ampner click here for recent press
In 2015, Charlie decided that the time was right to record, in the finest detail, a year on a normal, non-organic, non-rare breed farm – the sort of farm that forms the vast majority of the countryside, and feeds an even higher proportion of the population. The result is a comprehensive daily record of weather, farm activities, band rehearsals, gruesome medical matters, rural crime, and, of course, Tuesday nights in the Flowerpots pub. A farm diary like you’ve never read before.
Really looking forward to promoting this exciting new title based on the heroic Raid on Limbang by the Royal Marines in 1962. A fictionalised account by a Marine who was there. Alan Shoubridges’ witty but factual account is well worth a read.
