A Memory of Booton

My memories of Booton are from 40 years ago. My grandfather lived in a lovely council house there. I remember playing in the garden mostly...full of fruit trees and bushes! I lived in a city (Lincoln) so loved getting to Booton to the fresh air.
My grandfather used to look after the graveyard at St. Michael's for many years and he is buried there. I believe his mum and dad ran a shop in Booton but I think they died before I was born.
My father Brian Roberts, his brothers Bernard, Neville, Geoffrey and sister Christine all lived there before moving away to other parts of Norfolk or Lincoln.
