I've put this date for want of something better. I was born in Ilfracombe in 1955 and lived with my parents, Charles and Marjorie Thomas, until I left to come and live in Spain in 1973.
Our home was a house called Cherry Cottage, Coril Head, Braunton. To get to it you had to walk up SIlver Street.
I remember the Summerfields, who lived in the house you can see on the left hand side of the photo. Anne Summerfield who is a year older than I. They used to live in the cottage on the other side of the street. I don't remember the name of the house.
My father used to raise ducks on some land to the left of the bridge over the river running through the churchyard of St Brannock's church.
Cherry Cottage was sold in 1982 when my mother left England to come to Spain also.
I haven't been back to visit since 2003 but I don't remember many changes in the street.
