Foxley valley, with its small stream and rolling hills, was a source of extra food - mushrooms, sorrel, horseradish and berries were plentiful - vital for a community still managing on war rations. It was also a paradise for children.

Fallen timber was often sawn up and used in the barrack stoves.
