Allen Chalk began working as a farm worker at Chalk Pyt in Broad Chalke in 1944.
In this special local history event, the panel will discuss how farming has changed in the Chalke Valley since the start of the Second World War but also our attitude to the natural world that surrounds us, and what we can do to safeguard its future. James Holland will be joined by Allen Chalk, who began working as a farm worker at Chalk Pyt Farm in Broad Chalke in 1944, and Simon Smart, founder of the Chalke Valley Farmer Cluster.
