Julia Richardson (b.1947), was brought up on a remote hill farm on the fringes of the Lake District in Cumbria. After school, it was a four-mile walk home, where she was kept busy feeding hens and collecting their eggs, looking after sheep and calves and bringing in logs. She began working for her father full-time when she left school, but after two years grafting seven days a week with every third weekend off, she got a job as a weaver in Sedbergh.
