Worcestershire memories

Via Pershore

Enlarge photo |  More about this photo

Our grandparents live in Chipping Campden. When we lived in Worcester we would drive through Pershore on the way there. As a young child I used to acknowledge the little flags which were hung on string in between the buildings on either side of the high street.

I am Arthur Bridge's stepdaugher and first came to the Manor when I was 7yrs old, back in the 60's and lived there until I was 31. I have a photo of the building when it was a private house and I knew who lived there. I can tell you loads about the place.

Growing up ..........

I was only 4 years old when this photo was taken but clearly remember WALKING across the frozen river to it with my dad and sister 3 years later in 1963 from my granddad's garden, which is almost opposite the weir, which is next to the lock .....

RAF Camp Pershore

I lived in Pershore in the 1950s as my dad was based at the RAF camp there. I went to Pershore Infants then the Junior School. Headmaster was Mr. Goodyear. The school was near the Abbey - I remember it well!

Henry had 2 siblings, mary bn 1840 and Edwin bn 1851; Ellen had 4 sibs, Thomas bn 1828, Will bn 1830, Eliza 1832, Joseph 1840. Her father Thomas Ballard married Mary Weston at Cropthorne in 1821

RAF Pershore

My father was stationed at RAF Pershore in the early 50's and I went to Pershore Infants School. We lived in a caravan on the camp before moving into the old cookhouse that served as married quarters then. Anyone got a photo of the camp at that time?
