Grey field. Spring evening.
During and after the war The South Downs were turned over to arable crops. Huge fields were ploughed out of the chalky ground for cereal production; wheat and barley for food and animal feed, home grown rather than having to rely on imports from abroad.
It’s the end of April and at this time of the year the fields are ploughed over to reveal a grey soil. A barren wilderness like the surface of the moon.
