My friend, Paul Beecroft, has spent a good deal of his life in law enforcement, in England. He’s worked Foot Patrol, Area Car, Instant Response Car and also as a Police Motorcyclist. He’s currently a coroner’s investigator and has traveled all over England, Wales, Scotland and even Germany to investigate crimes.
Today, let’s leave the world of cops and robbers and join Paul as he takes us on a trip to The Cotswolds, in England. Please enjoy.
Paul – “A few years back I jointly wrote, with a friend, a biography about a Falconer from the past who was sadly KIA in France during WWII. On Monday last I went to an area of England known as The Cotswolds and visited the home where the person subject of the bio lived. The house is no longer owned by the family and is in fact split up into apartments. Very little though has changed, certainly externally. Although not obvious the current tenants have done a lot of work to try and preserve this huge old English house.”
