DP – The Transporter

Tell us about a sensation — a taste, a smell, a piece of music — that transports you back to childhood.

As a child I spent many holidays with my Grandparents at a farm. My Grandad had a very close friend who owned a farm in Somerset and we used to go over to help him manage the farm.

I have very very fond memories of this farm – unfortunately the friend died and the farm was sold. A huge part of me really wishes my girls could have the childhood I had and the memories I created whilst being on that farm.

One thing that always stick by me is the smell of the farm. As strange as this is going to sound – the smell of cow poop! It instantly takes me back to when I helped my Grandad muck out the cows. So when we go over to Marsh Farm it always sparks amazing memories.
