Monday Nothing much doing today cleaning up a bit Expect to go away shortly Paid this afternoon went out to Wormley tonight shall send my first diary home to-morrow
What takes him to Wormley? It isn’t far from camp, having grown up around Witley Station.
King Edward’s Schoool moved here from London in 1867; George Eliot and George Lewes bought “The Heights” in 1877; in 1897 Sir Edward Lutyens designed “Wood End” for a client, and his friend Gertrude Jekyll designed its garden. None of these facts is likely to have drawn Percy here on a summer evening.
Perhaps it is the pub, the Wood Pigeon. It is payday, after all.
That first diary was lost.
The 1909 postcard of Wormley is one of Francis Frith’s.
