Memories of Norfolk

Belton School

My mother-in-law, went to school with the actor John Mills, whose father was headmaster of the village school. In later years she helped to run a market garden with her husband in nearby Browston Green, and sold vegetables and fruit twice a week on Yarmouth market.

My great-grandparents, Herbert and Edith Cornish, were the landlords of this public house in the 1930s.

Music Teacher

My father, Kenneth Sydney Mickleburgh used to cycle from Bungay to give piano lessons to pupils in Norton, perhaps some of them still live there.

Mr Mickleburgh

I lived in Heckingham at the time he used to give me paino lessons every Tuesday lunch time; I went to Heckingham School. He played the organ at church as well, the lessons were 5 shillings for three quarters of hour. I remember he then got a moped and I remember him saying to my old chap the lessons would have to go up to 7 and 6 to pay for fuel. By the way I still can not play!

As a young lad we visited the Constitutional Holiday Camp for a number of years, as far as I can remember I went with my parents from about 1949 to 1955. At that time my parents were living in East London which even by then was still suffering from the results of the wartime bombing, and to visit Hopton was of course a breath of fresh air (in more ways than one). I can always remember the chalets which were brick built and rendered and after the sun had been on them all day were extremely hot at night. There was always lots to do for the children, with numerious competitions and sports and I can remember spending many hours on the small boating lake, sailing a small model yacht, having races with some of the other children. The food was always very good,and of the time was a very good place to have a holiday and all too soon was time to return home again.
