…and turn behind the pigsty
There is a corner of old Huntingdonshire “when you leave the rough road and turn behind the pigsty, to the dull façade and the tombstone”, encapsulated in T.S.Eliot’s poem Little Gidding. It is a corner of quiet meditation and relaxation, where once there was a community, back in the early 17th century, founded by Nicholas Ferrar.
The spirit of that community lives on amongst a small band of enthusiasts today, and the upcoming T.S.Eliot Festival (July 7-8th) allows Ferrar House to throw open its doors and welcome a broad spectrum of visitors who come, not only in search of a deeper understanding of Eliot, but also a deeper understanding of one of the places that inspired him.
