Caption for Bulphan, The Old Plough House C1955

Appleton's Farm was built in the 15th century. One of the Appletons, Sir Henry, engaged the Dutch engineers who worked on the Thames seawalls 300 years ago. During the 20th century, the farm became the Old Plough House Refreshment Rooms. It is still a well-known restaurant in this low- lying fenland area.

The Rest, Church Lane

My late grandma and auntie Gladys lived in The Rest, Church Lane. I visited them every year with my parents and sister. Bulphan holds very special memories for me. I remember Mr Steele from Stanley Road and my grandma had a friend called Florrie Blundell. We always went to the Bulphan Fete on August bank holiday, and my uncle and his family used to pitch a tent in the very large garden of "The Rest". My family name was Collins. I visited the village about four years ago but Church Lane is so different, and I wasn't sure where The Rest used to be. My grandparents are buried in the churchyard.

Dinner Ladies At Bulphan School

The dinner ladies deserve a mention, Miss Went and Mrs Thomas, they looked after us kids and I believe that Roy Thomas is still in the village. The photo from Friths is just how it was - well done. Adrian Vidler

Bulphan School

I went to Bulphan School in 1955/6 and can remember Mrs Last as the headteacher. Those were the days - I can always remember the lazy days of the 1950s. It was the best time. I can remember the school trips to Norfolk and Hampton Court. Mrs Last put herself out to arrange all of this and on a shoestring budget. She was a marvellous person. I can remember Martin Drury, Claire Packman, Linda Hanneman, Jeff Dommall, Roy Thomas, Len Buckley, John Scott, David Harris, Michael Grover, John Bisp, John Gnome, Hugh Cameron, Sally Morgan, Angela Povall, and Tony Wall.

I want to know what the farms' names were in Brentwood Road, Bulphan in 1425.
