Nigel Britton was born in Cheshire, England, during the decade. According to the prime minister of the day Harold Macmillan (Super Mac!), “You’ve never had it so good.” A comment that was thought to reflect these postwar years, the end of rationing, the beginnings of the new consumer Britain of the late 1950s.
Educated in Cheshire and Cornwall, Nigel’s working life has seen him operating several businesses for over thirty-five years.
A keen gardener and football fan, his other interests include home improvement, design and buildings, writing, and politics, where he has held the posts of school governor and local councillor.
Nigel has a grown-up son, Daniel; a daughter, Louise; and a recent edition to the family of a grandson, Oliver.
