Thank you all for your help. The writer lived in Kettering, Northamptonshire and he kept 4 cows and delivered milk around the town. 1863 was an exceptionally good harvest. I think he must have got his information from newspapers. I think down in the Fen is the only solution that makes sense to me.. Has anyone else got any thoughts on this?
