Evacuees

Happy memories of Barningham. I lived on Metcalfe Farm in Park House, sent there from South Shields with my mum and brother after our home took a direct hit during an air raid . Mum worked very hard on the farm along with German prisoners of war. We went to school in the village and shopped at Mrs Athertons with the monkey tree outside.
