Memories of the Test at Whitchurch by June Gracey

'[Your photograph] was a happy reminder of days fishing at the mill when Gavin was about 10 years old. Piper came with us each day armed him some breadcrumbs (grandfather's suggestion) to drop in the water and provoke a 'rise' is so the boy would not be disappointed and turn into a good fisherman - which he did. Gavin could tie a number of excellent flies and was so keen'.  Grandfather (Sir Alfred Herbert) left the Mill and its bit of fishing in his will to Ian Hollick, (June's brother). 

Extract of a letter from June Gracey, Sir Alfred's granddaughter, to Herry Lawford 25th July 2010
