I want to take up earlier comments that there were no black people in the countryside in 1961.  This is not the case at all.  I was born in 1951 to a white mum and black dad and we lived in the country with my two sisters.  

All my life I have found it annoying that I am always thought of as a foreigner or part of the Windrush generation when my dad from Cuba came to Britain in 1947 and was conscripted into National Service, where he enlist for another three years.  I lived in the same house as my grandfather and aunt and my great grandmother, who moved into the rented house in 1910....

There are many people of similar background who lived in the English countryside.
