  The Milk Lady at New Park Farm

The Milk Lady at New Park Farm
Anne McEntegar's celebration of the wartime Brockenhurst community

Published 2011


Anne McEntegart wanted to support the War Effort. Her Royal Air Force officer husband was working abroad and her only child was in Canada, evacuated for safety. Aged thirty-eight, Anne left London, and her life as the wife of an officer, to work on the land and deliver milk for Walter Gossling at New Park Farm, just outside the village of Brockenhurst, in the New Forest.

Though not an official member of the Land’s Army, Anne milked cows and stacked corn alongside the land girls on the farm.

Engagingly detailing the brim-full days of farm life during the build-up to D-Day and after, this book celebrates the people and places – not to mention a wayward pony – which made up the wartime Brockenhurst community.

The Milk Lady at New Park Farm is a World War Two diary of farmwork, friendship and fulfillment among the ponies and corn sheaves of the New Forest.
