Lorna Fielden was a long time friend to Edna Walling and helped edit and collate many of her books. Edna built Lorna the cottage at Bickleigh Vale which she called 'Lynton Lee'. Their relationship involved a sharing of duties: Edna did the heavy physical work and Lorna often did the domestic work.
A former teacher at Methodist Ladies College (MLC), Kew from 1919-1941, Lorna Fielden was also a published poet. Walling wrote the introduction to her book of poems "The Gardener's Warning", describing Fielden's book: "of all the gardening books I have yet read this one has delighted me the most." Two poems, 'my wife' and 'my husband' mention Gertrude Jekyll, thyme and spanish gardens, and sound as though they might be describing Walling.
Lorna Fielden moved to Buderim several years after Edna Walling where they lived out the rest of their lives. Fielden and Walling are buried next to each other below two magnificent trees at Buderim Cemetery, Queensland. They died exactly four years apart.
Edna Walling had named the cottage, 'Lynton Lee 'for Miss Fielden as it was the name of Lorna’s home in England.
When Ledlie, Betty and Beryl Wilson bought the cottage in 1954, Edna got a bit uppity because it had been specially named 'Lynton Lee' just for Lorna, and asked them to change the name. The name of the house was changed to Crail Cottage, after the Scottish village from which the sisters hailed. Not long after Edna Walling died, the name Lynton Lee was reinstated as the preferred name by the sisters.
