Quality research on market gardening, small farms and islands
It is possible to walk from the Butt of Lewis to Vatersay largely off road and using long forgotten routes. The Outer Hebrides The Timeless Way describes a walk from the Butt of Lewis to Vatersay, the isles’ most southerly inhabited island. It crosses moors and mountains, beaches and rivers, passes working crofts, weavers’ cottages and fisherman’s wharves, uses ancient tracks and ways, and is guided by historic navigational aids. The timeless way visits historic villages, ancient chapels and castles, thatched hostels and beehive houses. Here is the ultimate Outer Hebrides walking holiday.

Edited by Petra Clarke, Veronica Zundel and Bob Allaway. Preface by David Lammy MP.
Soon after Petra Clarke died in 2007 the Justice & Peace Group ceased to exist. As we were continuing to receive requests for this book we were given the remaining stock (two boxes). One box was given to Bruce Castle Museum, the proceeds to be used to help support the Museum (where the book had been launched). We continue to sell the book, whilst stocks remain. The proceeds from the second box may be claimed by the Group if it has been reformed. However, if nothing is heard from the Group the proceeds will be passed to Holy Trinity Church Tottenham at the end of each calendar year until the box is sold. [March 2017]
An affectionate and insightful series of biographical sketches of Herbert Gatliff, the founder of the Gatliff Trust, compiled in 1995 by Len Clark CBE former President of the Youth Hostels Association of England & Wales. Len Clark says in the Preface, "Herbert Gatliff was a truly English eccentric never likely to be forgotten by anyone who met him. This sketch of his life, activities and thought, supplemented by some of his own writings and anecdotal impressions of a number of people who knew him well, may help to bring a gap between the generations, especially for young people spending an evening in a remote hostel common room after a long day's journey, and looking through the hostel bookshelves."

East Bedfordshire's arcadia: history of prophecy? Market gardening yesterday or tomorrow. 1969 - 2009
Forty years ago Bedfordshire was famous for its market gardening. Bedfordshire onions and brussel sprouts were the best in the country. In 1969 I carried out a land use survey in East Bedfordshire. (I lived in Sandy Road, Potton at the time.) In 2009, to the day, I repeated the survey. Traditional market gardening, with its characteristic pattern of strip cultivation, had disappeared. Pasture, largely used by horses, woodland, mineral working and waste were the big gainers. A few arable farmers have survived but the cultivation of vegetables at field scale is now an activity undertaken by growers who specialise in a single crop e.g. onions or potatoes. These growers work over very large acreages, with fields scattered over many counties.
