Interview with Andrew H. Morton on Tolkien's Gedling Can't Post

It was my honor to do an interview with Andrew H. Moreton on Tolkien's Gedling, 1914: The Birth Of A Legend, a book about Jane Neave and Phoenix Farm.

Most people interested in Tolkien will have heard about Gedling, but not to much was know about Tolkien's aunt Jane Neave and Tolkien's connection with Gedling.

We all know she was Tolkien's aunt and that Tolkien must have had a special bond with her.
But one man went some steps further and did get a special interest in Jane Neave and Phoenix Farm.
He, and his research partner John Hayes, found out plenty about Jane Neave, who ran the farm and was said to be highly influential on her nephew, J.R.R. Tolkien.
Their findings are now published in Tolkien's Gedling 1914: The Birth of a Legend and I thought it interesting to ask the author, Andrew H. Morton, some questions.

Here is the transcript of the interview with Andrew H. Moreton.
