We met with Nadine, Doug and Rumble the Yellow Labrador on a wet morning in November. We sat in their wonderful home overlooking the Cambridgeshire countryside and were amazed by their story.
Doug, originally from Hertfordshire, and Nadine, from Cambridge, have lived in this idyllic village for 30 years and had always hankered to build their own home.
Doug now aged 80 is a retired chartered engineer who has worked all over the world in a variety of manufacturing industries and, possibly as a consequence of that, has an amazing eye for detail. Nadine who is 75 retired some years ago but had worked at the Cambridge University Institute of Astronomy for a number of astronomers who were to become household names.
