Exactly 100 years ago Walter J.C. Murray rented a derelict house in the Sussex countryside with the aim of making a living collecting herbs. His year is described in the wonderful book, Copsford. This album has been inspired by my discovery of the book, and by visiting the site with my family.
As recommended by Bob Fischer, in his ‘Haunted Generation’ column in the Fortean Times, and played on The Freak Zone on BBC Radio Six.
