Relative hopes to save WH Davies home


Norman Phillips, great-nephew of WH Davies, talks about the campaign to save the last home of the poet from Newport.

Davies lived in Glendower, an 18th Century cottage in Nailsworth, Gloucestershire, for two years until his death in 1940.

Mr Phillips faces a bill for essential repairs which could run into tens of thousands of pounds.

Local residents have formed The Friends of Glendower to help save the cottage and promote the poet's work.
