Soundings from an ancient farmhouse as it flexes its joints, sighs with the passing of the seasons and echoes with the sounds of its residents.

These include spiders which hang out in the window frames, bees that bumble round the bedrooms, slugs which slither across the doorsteps, hedgehogs that hang out in the kitchen and swallows up the chimney.

Writer and naturalist Roger Deakin presents a unique sound portrait of life in the timber-framed house in Suffolk.

In the following episode, Roger heads to ‘The Garden”.

Producer: Sarah Blunt

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in February 2004.
