Was This My Place Of Birth?

On my original birth cert the above is listed as my place of birth. I was adopted but it seems born in Bath. I have always wanted to see where I was born - alas it is too late but I hope I have located the spot. I would love to hear from anyone who has a similar experience or who has a little more information.

Playing In Rainbow Woods

I was born in Combe Down, my parents owned 'Grove Stores' on the end of Hawthorn Grove. I have so many very happy memories of playing in Rainbow Woods, it looks a bit different now obviously, but I can still see it in my mind as it used to be. Would love to hear from anyone who remembers it as well, or 'Grove Stores'. Sally Mason (nee Daniells).

Kingham House

This House is in Summer Lane at the top of 66 steps adjacent to the old Kingham Quarry, where undoubtedly its name was acquired.
