Clun is near to where my Grand parents managed a farm in the area which also doubled as a Bread & Breakfast.
I stayed in the White Horse Inn, the local pub.
The publican is a dead ringer for Sean Austin.
The village has a small castle which was almost all destroyed at some stage. Worth a look.
Later in the day I found my way to my grand dads farm. Luckily the people were in. They were the same people who bought the farm after my grand parents left. They were fascinated when I showed them digital versions of 8mm films shot at the farm and at Clun some 40 ish years ago.
They most graciously allowed me to take photos of the farm. I am sure my other family members will love to see.
I contacted the curator of the local museum (Museum was closed being a Sunday), and he is greatly interested in having copies of these old movies. I will meet him this morning and then on to Devon!
