Brian is a botanist and mycologist and used to manage a
field centre in England
in the Forest of Dean .
Helen was a teacher of French. We retired here to develop our love of France
and natural history. Helen and I are particularly interested in sharing our
environment with people of a like mind to us; those interested in the natural
world and the charming qualities of that fragment of France
which we have come to own. We can share our knowledge of nature and the
Helen has a devotion to water colour painting.
Brian writes natural history articles and is closely involved in producing
botanical guides for local footpaths. He has a wide range of books on all
aspects of natural history. One of his collections includes works by the
great Jean-Henri Fabre, the French naturalist and father of modern
behavioural research in the lives of insects.
Their daughter Rachel (at one time a teacher of maths in England)
from 2010 is developing with her husband Martyn an enterprise of cut flowers on part
of the surrounding estate.
