The Rev’d Tony and Judith Hodgson first came to Little Gidding in the early 1970’s, bought the farm, formed The Little Gidding Trust and began to gather a community.
After four years, they moved to Great Gidding where Tony became vicar of the Giddings and the neighbouring parishes of Hamerton, Upton and Winwick, ably supported by Judith. In the early 80’s they moved away and Tony continued to be involved in rural ministry until ‘retirement’ in 2000.
They retained an attachment to Little Gidding, and were able to return as Wardens of Ferrar House, until another retirement.
Tony died on the 11th July 2016 and is buried in Little Gidding churchyard.
Judith is living in Oundle.
