Sophie looked at the close turf, scarred only with last night's wheels, at two ruts which wound round a rickyard, and at the circle of still orchard about the half-timbered house.
She held her ground while the shadows in the rickyard moved toward noon; sat after a while on the steps by the door, her arms round the dog's neck, waiting till some one should come.
He was no longer in the paddock behind the rickyard
; where was he likely to be gone, and Yap with him?
There were walled enclosures like gardens and rickyards
and great roofs of barns and many electric dairy centres.
Dean Powell, 49, of Rickyard
Piece, Quinton, received nine months because he entered a guilty plea at a later stage in proceedings.
Checklist ADDRESS: The Old Rickyard
, Pond Farm Mews, Upper Eastern Green, Coventry.
A 3 /4 acre romantic garden created from an old farm rickyard
belonging to Judy and John Berrow.
Grandfather introduced me to it 60 years ago in the rickyard
of my father's farm in Monmouthshire.
These phrases from "Fern Hill" have received scant critical attention, with only Alastair Fowler hazarding that they mean "a child hailing the wagon driver and climbing on" (233), but this very scene is prominent in The Golden Age, where the narrator and his elder friend Edward are "revelling in the privilege of riding in the empty wagons from the rickyard
back to the sheaves" (72), whence they walk back to the rickyard
for another ride.
A third lot here, a former rickyard
with paddock, nearly two acres in all, fetched more than double its guide at pounds 34,500.
The woman was grabbed as she walked along an alleyway at the back of Rickyard
Piece, Woodgate, at about 2.35am on Sunday.
Turn left along High Street to the edge of the village and turn left into The Rickyard
and enter the field on the right at the waymark post.
