I am reading Ramble Round Willow Farm, Chapter 6, Sowing Clover. One hundred years ago the ways of the country were very different. Farming particularly was more hands on. In this episode, we learn how, why and when to sow a field of clover using four sticks and basket round the neck.

I have been reading a few chapters from this charming book by Arthur O. Cooke, written in just before the First World War. Farming at home, and England becoming self-sufficient, was soon to be essential because the convoys bringing imported food were about to be targeted by the Germans and without our farmers the country would have starved.

This became more important in the Second World War. I hope you enjoy the reading.

The plan was to take a walk from Ditchling in East Sussex to a secret bunker hidden in the countryside, but the weather has defeated us.

However, we shall do the walk later in the Spring - meanwhile, Darren tells me about the peculiar giant terrapins in the local pond and of his ancient family tree dating back to the Anglo-Saxon.

I am back in Lewes to see Kym Murdon to understand the art of Storytelling.

Wikipedia says: Storytelling describes the social and cultural activity of sharing stories, sometimes with improvisation, theatrics, or embellishment. Every culture has its own stories or narratives, which are shared as a means of entertainment, education, cultural preservation or instilling moral values. Crucial elements of stories and storytelling include plot, characters and narrative point of view.

The term "storytelling" can refer in a narrow sense specifically to oral storytelling and also in a looser sense to techniques used in other media to unfold or disclose the narrative of a story.

The book Rambles Round Willow Farm by Arthur O. Cooke was published before the First World War and tells of life on a farm in the West Country. Written for children, along with a series of other countryside books, the author introduces youngsters to rural life away from the large towns and cities.

For us, over 100 years later, it reveals in simple language an insight to a working farm in a period before tractors and automation; a time when the countryside was full of labourers earning a living from the land, and long before supermarkets could bring you everything you could wish for from around world.

In this video, I read the first chapter. Do let me know if you would like to hear more.

The lovely Julia and I are in the quaint village of Rusper, just north of Horsham. We take a walk around the church and then along the high street. I used to live in Horsham as a younger man, but never visited this nearby village. Today I am delighted to see all the old timber framed buildings lining the streets.

There was an overwhelming response to the recent video where I returned to Horsham to look at the fields I used to play in as a child and found new houses had been built. I thought it worth giving a few more words to this subject and allowing som eof the commentators words be heard too.

HG Wells wrote his famous book, The War of The Worlds, while living in Woking, in Surrey in the last quarter of the 19th Century. He set the landing of the first cylinder in the sandy soil of Horsell Common, a real piece of public land just outside the town.

Today, I met up with David Chown, a lover and expert of trees, to explore the flora of this remarkable manmade place and look at the old sandpits that once provided the town with its building materials.

The Southdowns offers a wonderful place to sit and have a brew with a view. Where is your favourite spot?

Today I am visiting a lovely church in West Sussex just off A29. I am joined by the lovely Cynthia Julian.

The 13th century Anglican parish church is dedicated to Saint Giles; a rare 11th century gravestone and a simple Saxon font are present on the site. A yew tree near the north west corner is among the oldest in England, believed to be over 3000 years old.

These days vicars are busy people; rushing about from church to church, serving the community and spreading the word of God.

I wanted to know if it was always like that, or if the pace of life for the rural vicar was far slower in the 'olden days'.

I met up with Father Peter at St Giles in Coldwaltham, near Pulborough in West Sussex and had a chat with him outside one of the four delightful churches he looks after.

I recently made a video about my new camping stove and stainless steel mugs for making coffee on the go. Well, I have realised that I need a few more things to keep in the car for my excursions into the countryside.

Join me in my studio to see what extra things i suggest, also do you have addition suggestions for stuff I need to keep handy?

I have watched many a wild camping video where the host rustles up a meal while walking in the great outdoors, and I thought it was about time I bought a small portable camping stove so that I could make a fresh cup of coffee on my video walks.

I have nabbed Julia to help me, and with a few cheap bits of equipment from Millets outdoor Shop, we test a small stove and kettle set up and make our favourite beverages. Join us to see how we do!

Today I am walking to Chanctonbury Ring on the South Downs Way from the west. As I approach the famous earth work, hill fort or ring of trees, however you wish to describe it, the mist rolls in.

Chanctonbury Ring once has a Roman Temple built upon it, but it is more famous these days for the ring of beech trees that Charles Goring planted in the 18th Century. They survived until 1987 when the infamous storm brought most of them down. New saplings were planted and have grown to respectable heights now.

In the mist, the ring is eerie and mysterious and made for a rewarding walk.

I love my instant coffee, my cafetière, the Turkish Briki coffee pot and my American 19502 Pyrex glass coffee percolator.

You may recall that last year I started to tell stories I had found in an old book about Sussex on my book shelves. Philip Mercy, curate and author, wrote a collection of short stories in a book entitled, Tales of Olde Sussex. It was published in 1834.

I made about ten videos and I'm keen to do more. But there is an important thing I need to tell you in this video.

This is part two of my meanderings around West Sussex in the Byworth area.

There are many footpaths in Sussex that intrigue me. Today I am near Petworth, in West Sussex, wandering down a seductive little track that I have spotted many times in passing. I have decided to stop the car and explore where it goes. Why not join me?

Portslade Old Manor is one of a very few examples of Norman manor houses that still exist in England. It has been deemed a Scheduled Ancient Monument, and a Grade II listed building.

Portslade Manor House was in use until 1807 when the new manor house was built. The old house was then used as an almshouse for the poor. In the Victorian era it was partially demolished, to provide building material for a garden folly in the new manor grounds.

But dog walkers watch out ...

Today I am off on a short circular walk in the countryside around Slinfold, near Horsham, in West Sussex. It is autumn and the colours of the leaves are a splendour.

I start beside the rebuilt Victorian church of St Peter in the heart of the village, amidst the beautiful rural buildings, such as the Red Lion pub, and head off following the course of the river Arun.

Join me on this jolly jaunt as I head off starting along the Sussex Literary Trail.

The weather hasn't been ideal, so today I am exploring the potential of a new gadget bought for me by one of my patrons and supporters; a 5" 4K TV video monitor to connect with my Gopro action camera for vlogging purposes.

One of the problems I have when out filming is relying on many of the auto features on the Gopro camera. They do a great job, but occasionally, the auto-exposure gets it wrong for me. But I have a fix.

Today I am demonstrating how I deep clean my Esse wood burning stove, the Ironheart, which cooks my food, heats my water and warms my house.

In a previous video I showed how I survived a year going over to burn wood instead of more conventional fuel such as electricity or gas.

Check out the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UxD5uU-Y2VI&t=640s

How I installed the Esse Ironheart in the first place: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jZ7a38_pEqU&t=5s

Today I am giving the stove a monthly deep clean, taking it to bits and brushing the soot away from the inner workings. Just how easy is it to really get the wood burning stove clean?

Julia and I are on a mission to seek out the Preston Twins, the oldest elms trees in Great Britain. They were planted/seeded around 1613, just over 400 years ago, and thanks to recent careful management have been looked after to avoid the terrible Elm Disease that is killing off mature elms in this country.

We are in Preston Park in Brighton, in east Sussex, where a number of other elms are growing. En-route we discover other interesting species and odd peculiarities which have us baffled. Join us in this mini adventure.

You help is needed to help us identify the other trees!
