After Jack and Audrey Newton from the English Midlands had both died, a local auction firm was called in. The team were duly tasked with valuing and selling the dead siblings’ belongings. But, eerily, when the evaluating experts entered the Newtons’ farmhouse in 2015, it was like stepping into another world.
Brother and sister Jack and Audrey had lived in Grange Farm outside the village of Ryton-on-Dunsmore in Warwickshire, England, for more than seven decades. They moved to the quaint farmhouse with their parents in the 1940s and helped them keep cattle and pigs and farm the 115 acres of land belonging to the property. The German Luftwaffe’s bombers almost leveled the nearby city of Coventry in World War II, but as we shall see, the Newtons’ farmhouse survived intact.
