  1. collecting stories about the wider area of Stroud. I am sure Ms Neville has an end less store of them, is Daphne interested in recording her memories of Chalford in the old days? Memories of George & Dorcas maybe. The website explains by example.
    If anyone is interested, especially Daphne, please get in touch. Have recorder, will travel.
    TIA

    • Yes, Daphne would love to tell you about George and Dorcas et al. She has lived at Bakers Mill since 1965, so has a wealth of stories. She is incredibly busy right now but you could ring her after Monday 28th July and see what is a good day for her. Last minute is good if she is free.

    • If you’d still like to interview Daphne Neville for Stroud Voices, do ring her one morning this week: 01285 760 234

    Daphne, I wonder if you remember me? I was known as Tilly and was a friend of Angus Ross. We both had flats at Arundel Gardens, Notting Hill in the late 60s. Angus brought me down to the Mill, what a lovely house! Have you still got the fire engine? I have seen you over the years, congratulations on your jam making triumphs! I am now a farmers wife in Suffolk, retired from a hectic London life and making jams and pickles too.

    Gill Harris (formerly Tilly Beresford Torry)

    • We still see Angus and Daphne still lives at Bakers Mill, still making jam. The fire engine when long ago but was replaced by other vintage cars and boats. Do give Daphne a ring. You’ll need to remind her of how you met but she’d love a chat: 01285 760 234

  4. I’ve just come across this wonderful website and tales of Daphne’s experiences. I wonder if Daphne would be happy to chat to me about her time working with The Two Ronnies on The Worm That Turned?

    Dear Ms Neville,
    I have heard that you have access to an alert system that warns animals not to cross the street in front of cars. Would you please tell me how I can find these? I would like to promote them because I it hurts my heart when see dead animals on the side of roads here in San Diego, California.
    Thank you so much for your work with otters and clean rivers! Otters are dear living beings!
    Thank you, cynthia wootton

  8. Hi.
    My son and I just looked you and Bee up on the internet. I was telling him how I came to see you and Bee in London one day. I was allowed into the area with Bee and yourself. I still remember Bee climbing all over me. Mum has many pictures of me with a big smile (and bad haircut).
    My son is 5 and I am just reading him “an otters story”, and he seems to be loving otters as much as I, still do.
    Lovely to see your website and that you still have an otter.

    I am a local writer, living in Brownshill. I am trying to find out more about the stone cottage in the field between Bakers Mill and Ashmeads, and also about George and Dorcas Juggins. Might you be able to talk to me about them? Best wishes, Rachel

    • Dear Rachel,
      Do give Daphne a ring. She’d love to chat about George and Dorcas, who she knew well, and ‘Silk Mill’, the stone cottage in her field. Mornings are best. If there is no answer, please leave a message on the answerphone and she’ll get back to you. She is rather deaf, but I’ll warn her you might ring. Her number is 01285 760 234.
      Daphne might not know that much about the history of the mill but I can fill you in. Please ring – tel: 01590 678 438
      Yours,
      Sophie Neville (Daphne’s daughter)
