Caption for Bodenham, Longford Castle 1887

This photograph shows Longford a few years after Anthony Salvin had rebuilt the facade. The original was built by Sir Thomas Gorges on his 250 acre estate at Bodenham. He ran out of money at one stage, and it was only owing to his being granted salvage from an Armada wreck that he had funds to finish the project. Gorges' castle celebrated the Holy Trinity in its construction: it was triangular in shape, with a round tower on each of the three corners. Bodenham was extensively altered during the 19th century.

Memories of Bodenham

1968 70

My parents had the shop/ post office from 68-70 and I went to Odstock school. The best years of my life without doubt. Great people in Bodenham, Nunton and Odstock. The Millers lived next to the school. They had 7 kids. Julie was a bit older than me, Glen was my age and Gary (sadly died some years ago) was a year younger. Don't remember the others. A girl called Debbie Yates had the first Chopper bike we'd ever seen. Everyone knew everyone in the villages and kept us all in order. Wish we had never left.

Life In The Park.

I was born in Longford Park in April 1942, my father was "Bill" Ashman, head gardener to the Earl of Radnor from 1940 until 1965 (approx).  My younger brother Peter and I were fortunate to have been brought up in the relative calm and prosperity of the Longford Estate immediately after the war.  Many reminders of the estate's wartime role were still evident in those times especially the Nissen huts occupied by the American troops prior to their D Day landings. The park in those days boasted four gate lodges at Britford, Bodenham, Nunton and Alderbury, although the Nunton lodge was demolished to assist in the improvement of the A338 main road to Bournemouth. I am reminded of many characters from that era, ...Read full memory
