A former farmer, who lived as a seemingly impoverished recluse in a caravan, has left a generous legacy to his local church, reports the Daily Mail.

Maurice John Young died in 2010 at the age of 81, and had no wife or children. After his death, it was revealed that he had left £60,000 to the church where he and both his parents are buried.

According to the Daily Mail, the local vicar said that the bequest was ‘a bolt out of the blue’ and expressed gratitude on behalf of the church for the generosity of the gift.

The executor of Mr Young's will has reportedly given his approval to plans to use the money to help fund renovations to some of the church buildings.
