Storyline

Edie McClure's eldest daughter Joanne falls pregnant after a one night stand. She goes into premature labour at her father's iron works but Tom delivers the baby and keeps it alive in a fish tank with hot water bottles round it. To the Cosgroves it is harsh to see others bear children as Linda has a condition, caught from a G.I. in the war,rendering her virtually barren.When the village water supply gets cut off Deborah,researching local customs, sees the opportunity to help Linda by staging a fertility rite,which involves village women dancing naked. The water is restored,not due to any ceremony but to Michael,who has climbed into the well. In the absence of water the vicar and his chums have been drinking brandy after two crates,destined for the bishop,have erroneously been sent to him. Written by don @ minifie-1
