“Stack the brash”

In this video, I explore the history of basket-making in Stowmarket, and the associated osier beds that provide the ‘withies’ for the baskets.

I visit Danecroft Cottage again and find Steve and Judith doing some winter woodland management.

We hear from Steve’s Dad, aged 93!

And Judith reads a beautiful poem written by her friend Ann James, who passed away a few years ago.

Bramble the goat also makes an appearance in the river valley.
