The Palace Ruins Bishopswalthem

We have 2 small vase and an ink well in pink with a picture of The Palace Ruins Bishopswalthem on the front of each. My father William John Aburrow was born in Bishopswalthem and used to tell me about the tunnels under the ruins. We are thinking of giving the vase and ink well to the museum at the ruins.

Chip Shop @ The Mafeking Hero

I grew up in Waltham and have many memories of my years spent there. I loved this picture because I lived on Ridgemede , which was just down the road from the pub & we used to go and get fish & chips from the chip shop on a Saturday evening. The chip shop was in the part of the pub that extends out, with the black little door! Nice little trip down memory lane

'Old Wood' From 1800's

I own 2 pieces of oak furniture which my great grandfather made from the old ruins of the Palace. They lived in Bishops Waltham and I believe (informed by my father of 87) his family owned 2 local mills.
