Memories of Cumbria
River Derwent Crossings Brigham/Broughton
I remember the first time I was in the village after the butcher had been slaughtering pigs. There was blood being channelled from the slaughterhouse down the road to another part of the shop where he was going to make black pudding. It took me years before I could even look at black pudding after that, let alone eat it
Low Lodge Farm
I remember my first job was on Low Lodge Farm. We had to milk the cows and the milk went into 10 gallon churns which we had to wheel up to the top of the yard and lift onto the milk stand for the wagon to pick up. I was 15 at the time and those churns seemed like they weighed a ton.
The farm has gone now, and four house are in its place.
Great Clifton was a great village as a child. I'm only 16 now but I think it's great to learn about its history.
Hundredth Anniversary of Wordsworth's Death
I was born in Bridge Street and went to Fairfield School, or "Fairfield Junior Mixed" as it was called when it became Co-Ed in about 1948. I remember the whole class having to walk up to Harris Park and stand round the fountain shown in the picture. Unfortunately we had to hold a daffodil during the walk and then recite Daffodils when we were round the fountain. I noticed when I was in Cockermouth a few weeks ago that the fountain has moved onto the Main Street into the Memorial Garden opposite Wordsworth House. The Garden is on the site of my grandparents house and the Wordsworth tavern.
