He was first a farm pupil and then a farmer and lived in various parts of the County for the next 60 years until his death in September 1980. During that time he wrote 25 books, most of which were based on his life and work in Suffolk. His work on farms included the rebuilding of a near-derelict 89-acre (36 ha) smallholding at Redisham, near Beccles. His first book, Corduroy, published in 1930, vividly describes his early years on the land when farming depended on the horse to do what man could not. He also contributed many articles to various magazines and for 30 years his 'Countryman's Notebook' was a feature of the Eastern Daily Press, he was also the first 'setter' of the Times crossword and is credited with help develop its cryptic style.
