Wavy and the Milking Room, Dairy Farm, Thrandeston, Suffolk - 28th March 2005

It's getting to the end of the line after generations of dairy farming at the appropriately-named Dairy Farm in Thrandeston, thanks to the price pressure of supermarkets and huge commercial dairies. So on the way back from taking photos of an epic clearance, Nosher swings by to see Wavy's caravan and a milking session
