Layby in Wales


Her knowledge of wild plants was vast, and she could identify them on verges from a moving vehicle. Any stop, as with this layby in Wales, was an opportunity to explore what flora lived there. Self taught, she was also a knowledgeable herbalist, often knowing more than some who traded as trained professionals.

During the 1980s she traveled with One World Films, a charity she co-founded dedicated to communicating the urgent need to take care of the environment, together with the need for sustainable development in the poor world; running a mobile video show and accompanying vegetarian café, which traveled the UK to a variety of outdoor events from counterculture festivals, carnivals and medieval fayres to music and arts festivals like WOMAD, from Wales to East Anglia and from Cornwall to Northumbria.

Ever willing to get stuck in erecting a marquee as cooking in the site kitchen for site crew putting on the festival, she was a hard worker who never shrank from anything, including picking up rubbish spilled from an overturned council skip truck at Glastonbury one year. She both fed and entertained visitors at many varied events.

The forces of law often mixed with the counter culture back in the day.
