Winifred Foley grew up in the 1920s - a bright, determined miner's daughter - in a world of unspoilt beauty and desperate hardship. Living hand to mouth in a tumbledown cottage in the Forest of Dean, Foley - "our Poll" - had a loving family and the woods and streams of a forest "better than heaven" as a playground. But a brother and sister had died in infancy, bread had to be begged from kindly neighbours, paraffin and even candles were in short supply, and she never had a new pair of shoes or a shop-bought doll. And most terrible of all, like her sister before her, at fourteen little Poll had to leave her beloved forest for the city, bound for a life of service among London's grey terraces.
