People living in past generations really knew what hardship meant.

Ted Beasley, of Moulton Chapel, says his grandfather Bob Rose, pictured, walked from Holbeach St Johns, where he was living as a single man, to Sleaford in search of farm work.

One year, when he learned there was no work for him, he kept walking, eventually finding a job in a coal mine 100 miles away.
