The daughter of John Betjeman, Candida Lycett Green was English through and through. An author, conservationist and horsewoman, Lycett Green was a bohemian member of the Private Eye set whom lived by the Reverend Sydney Smith’s “take the short view of human life, never further than dinner or tea”. She began her marriage to the “romantic maverick” gambler Rupert Lycett Green with a round the world trip in a Land Rover and tellingly wrote such books as Goodbye London and Unwrecked England. A mother of five, Lycett Green bred 60 winning racehorses and loved exploring England.
