Clouds Hill
near Moreton
After Lawrence of Arabia retired from the Royal Air Force at the age of 46, he settled in a cottage called Clouds Hill. Tragedy hit only a few months later, when riding his motorcycle, Lawrence crested a hill and met two boys on bicycles. Swerving to miss them, he crashed, fractured his skull, and died. Winston Churchill assured a grieving Britain, 'Lawrence was one of the greatest beings alive in our time.'
