Burgh Church

A Memory of Burgh St Peter

The photo shows a rowing boat which probably belonged to my great grandfather "Busky Tripp" who ferried people across the river at the nearby staithe. He also rowed to Lowestoft fish market and back nearly every day with a load of vegetables from his market garden. He would bring back fish to sell in the village. His daughter Marnie Tripp was organist in the church for many years.
