Brentwood, 1.54am: 2°C, light rain

Which side of the bed do you sleep?


 

For her historical gem this week, Margaret Mills transported us back to the 18th century and the tale of an Essex inhabitant of a house on the borders of East Hanningfield and Great Baddow.

When she became sick, she needed help from the parish but as her property straddled the parish border, there then followed an argument as to which of the two parishes would have to take responsibility.

In the end the matter was settled once it was established on which side of the bed she slept!

You can listen to the story in full here: –

See you again next week,
Scott
