Old-style farm in pre-war pattern, thatch & small fields

Old-style farm in pre-war pattern, thatch & small fields

Even in the 1980s it was rare to see thatch still in use. Some buildings were vacant or derelict, but others remained in use, mostly in the narrow valleys far from the paved roads of the cities. This scene shows everything well maintained, both fields and buildings.
