Another excellent podcast Adrian. I am loving the history lessons everyday. ‘Everyday is a School Day’ thank you.
[07:57:27] Adrian Dale:

[07:57:12] Resident101:

I have to ask was Duchy Close built on Duchy Land hence its name?
[07:58:17] Resident097:

Jeez thats overkil !!
[07:58:46] Resident019:

Compared to how it was its brill!
[07:59:32] Resident097:

What next Hazmat suits
[08:01:00] Resident010:

Its seems to be the store where a certain contingent of shoppers just push in front of you to get something and forget the distancing thing.... Is that a curtain BETWEEN two tills to cover the sideways distancing ???
[08:01:44] Resident097:

Looks like it
[08:03:39] Adrian Dale:

Yep divides all tills . They opened at 07:50 and the tills at 08:00. No queue now and everything plentiful except flour

Thank you Adrian and Michelle. The podcasts are so interesting and inspiring. Love starting the day with them.
[08:15:39] Michelle Dalliston:

Definitely listening as always Adrian! Very proud to be a part of this amazing community and how we are living together in such times. Sorry for surprising you with the Easter Garden 🤣 the whole Easter thing is meant to surprise us though! Looking forward to being surprised by how it grows over the next few weeks 😃 🌱❤️
[08:17:12] Resident131:

Lovely message from Rev Michelle this morning. I am looking for the lady that used to be the Reverend over in Bromham, I think it’s Janet. Many thanks, Vanessa
[08:21:09] Resident094:

Hi Vanessa she is Linda Bond who has been caring for her father in Doncaster. They both came back to Higham yesterday so she is around a little more lockdown permitting
[08:22:21] Resident131:

Hi Paul, many thanks, much appreciated. Vanessa
[08:46:21] Resident016:

Excellent Sam👍
[09:03:15] Adrian Dale:

I have no answer for Rachael on the naming of Duchy Close but have found an 1898 map of the Parish. The census of 1901 showed 348 people in 92 properties. We’ve now got 230 properties and the census of 2011 showed a population of 566. However at that time Chelston Rise was on just in the process of being repopulated.
[09:40:02] Resident058:

Duchy Close is built on the old site of Duchy farm and that’s how it got its name. The field next to the Close is called Duchy Field owned by Carr Farmers.
[09:42:37] Adrian Dale:

(Chelston Rise) have just inspected John Henry Group work. It’s a lot better than the previous gang and they are working 2m from BT Ducts
[09:43:48] Resident018:

Thanks Adrian, great to know 😊
[09:43:56] Adrian Dale:

So we had 2 Duchy Farms? One in Chelveston and one in Caldecott?
[09:48:16] Resident058:

Not sure, but the Duchy Farm in Chelveston is shown on early maps, perhaps they just took over the name when the old farm was demolished years ago.
[09:49:50] Resident101:

Thanks gives us something to work on. Cheers
[09:54:51] Resident131:

Thank you Adrian, everyone here on the Crescent very much appreciates your help and support
[10:13:53] Resident097:

[10:50:35] Resident016:

There is also another Duchy Close in HF - this morning’s podcast explaining why....
[11:11:19] Resident058:

Duchy farm in Chelveston was farmed by the Britten Family and subsequently purchased by Jack McCauley before being developed over and is now Duchy Close.
[12:06:20] Resident054:

Thanks to the farmer (Ray?) for cutting the grass along the main road. Makes our morning walk much easier 🤗
