Neil Fletcher with his lawn mower at his house in Watchet, Somerset. See SWNS story SWBRthirties. A couple have scrapped modern life to live like the 1930s including their clothes, car, furnishings and appliances - even using a mangle and a gramophone. Lisa and Neil Fletcher have transformed their lifestyle and home into a pre-war Britain era - from their flooring down to the doorknobs. They only watch black and white films and TV, have vintage light switches and a 1930s fridge, lawnmower, vacuum cleaner and car. The pair try and only ever pay with cash and use a landline - not a mobile phone.
