Between 1898 and 1942 Herbert Golledge recorded the events which occurred around the villages of Shoscombe and Single Hill in the parish of Wellow, Somerset, England. The following is a transcript of the Notebook he used provided by Ella Drew before her death. Ella was for many years the landlady of the Apple-Tree Inn at Shoscombe.

It would seem that he started from the back towards the front, at some point switched to the front and then continued in both directions.
