After a couple of days exploring my family heritage in Cumbria I have discovered that my forebears worked in a textile mill, went to bed four hours after they had to get up again, lived in a small hamlet on a freezing hillside, ate gravel, founded and built a Methodist Chapel. I realise, on my mother's side at least I'm more Northern than I had previously understood.
