Alston My Birthplace

A Memory of Alston

Although I can't remember Alston as a baby, I did revisit at the tender age of 10 years and can remember the impact the town had on me, knowing I was born there. I was shown the house we lived in, it was called Sunset View at the Butts if I remember correctly. I was also shown the hospital which I think was the cottage hospital. Most of all though I can't forget how picturesque the place was. We left Alston (I am told) when I was two or three years old but I can still relate to Alston as my home town. I do hope one day to revisit all the way from my home now in Australia before my memory fades too badly.
