It might have been a remarkable old house; when I was a baby these places were just rented out. I didn't get to know much about it because we flew to Singapore soon after my birth,though of course we came back. It's weird to think I walked past it so often while growing up without knowing it was my birth home. If houses had feelings, I can imagine it calling after me, 'Hey little girl, remember me?'

The trouble with Devizes is that it is quite photogenic. In real life it's rather dull and forgettable, for all its history.

I would quite like to thank the house for looking after me all those years ago. But going back is never as much fun; the asylum, the Bear hotel, the old house, Hillworth Park and the Oak tree, the canal... I feel I should do something with these elements. We were not happy there, at all. But that's where stories are made, uncomfortable places.
