'When we moved to Wales in 1983 we soon discovered to our great joy that our neighbouring farmer, Walter Price, was a born and bred Radnorshire man. By then the Village elder, he was wise, kindly, a man of the soil, a true and immensely knowledgeable country-lover, interested in artistic things, and eccentric. His farmyard with its ramshackle buildings was full, not only of the usual ducks and hens but exotic Chinese pheasants, and peacocks which would roost in the trees, and black Norfolk Turkeys, an endless and constantly changing menagerie where I spent many happy days drawing.' John Sergeant, letter to Paul Liss, 28th February, 2005.
