I met Elspeth with her close friends Julia Ball and Gerd Browne. They met through a Cambridge peace group and were on one of the first walks from Wales. They produced a book, 1983/4, an anthology of women’s writing, MY COUNTRIES – THE WHOLE WORLD FROM SAPPHO TO GREENHAM, now out of print. They felt empowered by the Greenham experience, Elspeth going on to be a successful potter, Julia, already an artist, inspired to continue and Gerd opening her own bookshop.

They were interviewed by June Hughes in Cambridge in 2019.
