This chapter details the east country in July, looking at a nuclear power station in Sizewell. Once a fishing village and a remote smugglers' spot, Sizewell has been known for fifty years for the hint of nuclear fear. The chapter then turns to the farmlets of Albion. In the Second World War, allotments were vital for the Dig for Victory campaign, swelling in number to two million. The ministry printed pamphlets on growing the exotic potato, the carrot and onion, and encouraged the formation of pig clubs. Vegetable rows appeared on bomb plot, front garden, village green, rail line side strip, and airfield. Postwar they fell away. Today, some 300,000 plots remain. The chapter also recounts a heat wave, when the poppy died and some roads were cheaply repaired patch by plastered patch.
