Poetry in unusual places: Part 7

1 Jan

Over the festive period the Sharratt family usually decant to Norfolk, where much drinking and eating is to be had with other members of the extended clan.  We stay with my brother-in-law who is a house master at Greshams School, near Holt.  I was delighted to find out the WH Auden had been educated there.

All our meals were eaten in a diningroom surrounded by relics from old boys, Auden’s school photograph, a piece of music written by Benjamin Britten.  Strange though, there was nothing from Maclean and Philby, two of the Cambridge Five who were also educated there.
