Low House

lived here in the 'low house' for a couple of years with my parents; eddie and anna macleod, in fact i feel my heart still lives here. the sunday hunts, kippers on a friday, local folk groups around the settle, big, thrashy, noisy 'cool' bands in the stable/shed. the beer festivals, the adnams ale and me and my family welcoming everyone into our home, the Kings Head. xxx

Sparrows

I remember Sparrows very well. I lived in Laxfield from 1967 - 1972 I remember going up to the attic at Christmas time and buying some goodies. Also, I remember the phone box outside, a friend and I got into trouble for making false phone calls. We were 9 or 10 years at the time. I'm planning to visit England in June, and am hoping to make a trip to Laxfield. Jane E. Johnson (nee Riemenschneider)
