Point of Notice!

Please remember you are a guest in the village.
I am sure it does not really need to be said, but for the record;

Please respect the privacy of the people living there.
This goes especially for the family presently living at Far Leys.
They have already been through more than enough through the years.
If you want to walk by the house anyway, please hold a respectful distance.

The people in Tanworth-In-Arden have always been as nice
as to put up with us fans coming by all the time and always
patiently answering our questions concerning Nick Drake.
Let's make sure to keep it all in that nice and friendly way.

Thank you.
