Miss Wall's House

A Memory of Broughton

The house on the left was occupied during the war by Miss Wall, who was the village ambulance driver, as and when required. The gates on the "new" cemetery are named in her memory. The box-like structure on the side of the house is where people used to wait for "the carrier", a horse and carriage, to go to the market in Salisbury on Tuesdays before there were buses.

A memory shared by Thomas Dowthwaite , on Oct 5th, 2010.
