Memories of Teddington
Two Properties in The 1930s
Before the Second World War my grandfather, Donald MacVitie, was a builder who renovated properties in the Cheltenham, Tewkesbury area, often living in them during or after doing the work. The Old Forge at Aston-on-Carrant was one of them. I believe that my grandfather also did some work on The Manor House in the late 1930s and I have a brochure outlining the forthcoming sale by auction of the property on 28th June 1939.
I was born at Middle Farm on Feb 27th,1949. My dad was Roy Nutter and my mum was Betty Nutter, my folks came down from Lancs after the war, my mum's brother, Fred Winnard, also lived nearby at Kinsham. I think the farmer was 'Blakeway'?, and a couple called 'Persch' (Heinz and Jocelyn ) were also neighbours, I remember 2 children called Johnny & Gillian? also an older girl Yvonne. Pamington is mentioned in the Domesday Book, along with Anne, Countess of Warwick who was granted the lands by King Richard for services rendered to the King by her husband during battle etc. Until recently I lived in the nearby village of Prestbury and often 'visited' Middle Farm just passing, the place has altered considerably since I was born there
I was born in Fiddington in 1947, in a very old thatch cottage, so I was told. we moved to Northway in 1950 to a new house in Elm Road - number 6. It was a three bed and living room and kitchen, we felt very pleased compared with the cottage. My gran was using the front room for herself and me and my brother and mum and dad used the rest of the house. We had good days and bad as we were still on rations. Mum and gran were great cooks so we had plenty of home made grub lol. Dad was working on the houses in the next row, it was quite a big site plus the first ones to be built after the war. We had 2 shops, one was an old shed, quite big and run by the Randles - they did groceries and veg. The other shop was the paper shop run by Mrs Scivens - she was a right old... Read more
Central House, Kemerton
My father Raymond John Price, known as John, was born in Central House on the 8th 0ctober 1918, his father was George Price and mother was Sophia Jane Price. My father was called up to served in the Royal Navy during the Second World War. After demob my mother and father settled in Tewkesbury. I always have very fond memories of my visits to my grandparents' house in Kemerton. My grand father was a market gardener. He used to wash the spring onions in the brook that flowed just outside the front gate. There were ducks and chickens and one rather frightening cockerel. I often re-visit Kemerton and those happy child hood memories and when I look at Central House, you would now have to be a millionaire to live there.
I can recall going to the Tithe Barn in 1961 where they were holding a jumble sale, and buying my mother a wind up gramophone for a shilling. There were some old 78's with it which mum kept for many years. I was 8 at the time and living in Stoke Orchard. Its wonderful looking at these old photos. Thank you.
