George Eliot Fellowship

The George Eliot Fellowship

Born into a working class family in the heart of George Eliot country, it seemed unlikely that my passion for ponies and dogs would be realised.

A lifetime in farming has allowed me to develop my interests and gain a deep understanding of the communities George Eliot writes about; the people, the animals and the landscape.  Because of this I am affectionately referred to as “our agricultural correspondent “ among the George Eliot Fellowship.

As my family are all from Nuneaton and its environs, I  am fortunate to have several connections with George Eliot.
