On the 27th August 1911, Rupert Brooke, the poet, arrived
to camp at Clifford Bridge with a group of friends. This group
included Virginia Woolf and James Strachey (brother of Lytton).
In Christopher Hassall's biography of Rupert Brooke he tells
us that the mornings 'began early at Clifford Bridge'; two members
of the group arose at five thirty to put on the porridge and
do the chores before breakfast.
