History

Caption for Biggleswade, Market Square C1955

Much of the life of the town revolves around the Saturday influx to the weekly market. To cater for both thirst and the sometime necessity to sit down to do business, Market Square is surrounded by pubs and cafes. The roof of the Market House, to the left of the picture, dates back to the 16th century and was preserved when road-widening operations took place in 1937.

Memories of Biggleswade

Family

I love this photo because it contains my parents and brothers. The man with his foot on the wheel of the pushchair is my dad, Don Webb, and the woman to his left is my mum, Mary. The small boy between them is my brother Ian and my other brother, Graham, is in the pushchair. Sadly, only Ian is still alive.

We emigrated to Australia when I was 12 and a half, which was 50 years ago this year, but my fond memories of Biggleswade still remain.

Bad Memories

I am now 73 but still remember my time in the Boy's Home at Biggleswade. I cannot remember how old I was, possibly around 6 to 9.

We raided the larder ...Read full memory
