I wondered if I could contact Margaret as My Father worked at Chillmead farm and often helped out at Battlebridge farm from 1945-1963 I'm doing some research on the places I have been involved in over my life and wondered if she would be interested in contacting me and what connection she had with the farms and Merstham.
