History

Caption for Barry, Holton Road 1903

This is a typical scene of the early 1900s: when word got out that a photographer was in the area, passers-by stopped and posed for the picture, just like today when TV crews and cameras come into town. The first shop on the right is Sandy's newsagent's, and next door is Woodham's the fish and game dealers, complete with a policeman in the doorway. Note the post box outside Holton Road Post Office (now Greggs) to the right. On the opposite side of the road is the Victoria Hotel and the block of shops with Boyles Boots, which has since been demolished.

Boating Lake

I spent many happy hours in the late 1940's rowing on the Knap Lake. At the time I was living in what was then called Cold Knap Farm (now Cole Farm), my father being the gardener to the owners of the White House. I lived there from birth to my marriage in 1959 and my parents moved out in the late 1960's when my father retired.
