Buildwas, Abbey Hotel From The Abbey 1896
Memories of Buildwas
I was known as Katie Baker, I lived at No.4 Park View. Looking back life was simple, enjoying the changes of the seasons knowing you would be snowed in in winter, and flooded out in the spring. Watching the boar come up the Severn. I remember playing on the sandbanks when the river was low, the strong community spirit and singing in the choir.
My name is Nigel Baugh, I lived in Buildwas until the age of 21 when I got married and moved out. My parents still live in the village at the top of the road. Life was good, play around, up the woods making dens, riding bikes down the road at brake neck speeds and getting a clip round the ear off the folks, which never did us any harm. Sadly time has moved on but nice memories
