Visiting Burwash In 1950's.

A Memory of Burwash

My grandmother lived in Burwash and we used to visit often from London. I used to roam around with my mother's younger half sister, picking spring flowers on the lane down to St Joseph's college and getting milk straight off the cooler at the farm there; scrumping or picking blackberries and nuts in the autumn. My grandmother worked at Bateman's and I used to help clean the brass and copper ware.
The author of Mary Plain books, Gwynnedd Rae, also lived in Burwash and I remember going to her house and seeing some of the items which were featured in the books.
