The Doctor's Surgery

A Memory of Bulphan

I remember the doctor used to visit the village once or twice a week & set up his surgery in Mrs Benton's house. Mrs Benton, (Alice, or was that her daughter?), lived in the cottage at the end of the row, furthest away in the picture. The waiting room was Mrs's Benton's sitting room, we used to sit with her as we waited for our turn, I would've been 5yrs old at the time. Sometime after that I remember everyone from the village queueing through the cottage, (in the front door, out the back), to have their smallpox injection. After the new village hall was built, (1966?), the doctor used to go there.
