Eastleach Characters – John Blackwell
Johnnie Blackwell worked at Macaroni Farm for many years.
He was a real character, living with his brother and sister in the village for many years, none of them married. He could be seen collecting the fresh river water for his brother who said he wouldn’t wash with tap water.
