The history of Enfield and the meaning of the name are discussed initially in this recording of William Carey. The buildings in the town, the occupants and their work, the farming people in the outlying farms are all recalled. William farmed near Enfield for thirty-five years. He remembers the war years, and the tillage contracting business he ran during that time. Also recalled are the migrants to the midlands, the Land Commission and the positive influence of dairying in farming in later times. An active interest in local and national politics is evident too. In the 1970s William began his business in auctioneering, which his son now runs. Using his in-depth local knowledge he gives an excellent account of deeply-rooted local family and place-names.
