Bob Cropper, writing a forward to the publication "Downland Shepherds" by Barclay Wills said :-
"By 1930, as a result of the decline in farming fortunes and much of the land being taken over by building development, we were forced to shake the soil from our boots and turn to more Urban pursuits as a means of livelihood".
So it was with our Shepherd, who latterly became a Nurseryman. His Brother, Peter was employed as a gardener at Clayton Windmills when they were owned by Miss Jones.
Charles Miller died in 1942 and was buried on 16th September, aged 63 years, in the Churchyard of St. John The Baptist at Clayton, adjoining millers from the Clayton Windmills, who also lie there within sight of their mills.
