Jacqueline Cannings spent a great deal of her working life on farms around Sussex. As a young girl, she spent some years with the Land Army working on a farm in Rodmell, East Sussex. In the sound clip, Jacqueline Cannings talks about some aspects of rural working life; what fox hunting means to her, and about the visit to the farm of the man with the 'bowler hat.'
