Only in the countryside would you find a little cupboard like this, stacked with wonderful jams and jellies, and laid out with trust. Inside was also a tupperware box to put your money. I bought two jars of Jane’s Jam: a Pershore Plum and a Crab Apple & Sloe Jelly and deposited my cash carefully in the box.
The cupboard is in Preston on Stour, a very old idyllic village. This overgrown Tudor farmhouse looked like just the sort of house that my lead character inherited. Spying through the windows I could see it is lived in but everything is faded and covered in dust.
