Crossing Into The '60s...

A Memory of Barnstaple

I'm fairly confident that the people below occupied the properties at that time;
No 1 - The Vicar of St Marys' Magdelain in Bear Street, he lived on his own, a short, dark and mysterious man with bushy eyebrows.
No 2 - Occupied by the Burges's and also owned [or rented] a walled plot of land just opposite.
No 3 - Owned by the Dimeo family, ex RAF.
No 4 - Occupied by spinster Ms Damon and her Mother.
No 5 - We moved from Chivenor to this house during 1963, my parents bought the property from Mr & Mrs Fry who moved up into a new bungalow in Sunset Heights which overlooked the Hills View green. Mr Fry was a decorator in partnership with his son.
No 6 - Mr & Mrs Sheppard lived here, he was the Manager of The International supermarket in High Street.
