When she was a young girl, in Snitterfield, my mother was lucky enough to have a bicycle and used to ride all round the nearby
countryside. One day whilst crossing Yarningdale Common in about 1920, she saw what appeared to be a brown carpet across the
road, several feet wide. As she drew closer, she saw movement, and being a young girl and a bit nervous, she stopped, got off her
bike and slowly approached. Then she realised that it was rats, hundreds of rats, crossing the road and moving off across the
common. She didn't stick around to see what happened and cycled home in a hurry. Of course everyone in the village soon learned
of her experience and several other people told her and my grandfather of similar experiences of "rats on the move", both in
Warwickshire and elsewhere. Has anyone else heard similar tales ? Tell us about them - email us !

|Snitterfield is a pleasant village which lies about 4 miles north of Stratford-upon-Avon. I have
lots of family connections with the village. My grandfather, Fred Jones, was a blacksmith here,
as was his son, my Uncle Ern. Mum and Dad lived at Langley when they were first married - in
1928. For more information on this pretty village, visit www.snitterfield.com
