The Rest, Church Lane

A Memory of Bulphan

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.
