Finding inspiration within your own family
On the way down to Oxford I wanted to visit one of my ancestral homes.
In the beautiful village of Church Hanborough I found the cottage where my great grandmother and grandfather Emma and Herbert Partridge lived. When I found it I couldn't believe that I was actually standing outside this same cottage which has hardly changed in over 100 years.
It was the most amazing experience and one that has inspired me the moment I got back to research even more into my family history, talk to people and write it down.
I find it so wonderful that it does not always have to be the famous places or people that inspire us, sometimes we may find something a little closer to home within our own family history that can spark the desire and inspiration to write.
