Train

A Memory of Allendale Town.

During the 2nd world war, probably around 1944, I was on holiday with my parents and maternal grandmother staying in a cottage opposite the green. We often saw Italian PoWs cycling by to do local farm work. One rather blustery night we went to a make-shift cinema show across the river and the film included Will Hay. It was either the Ghost Train or something where a train crashed from a bridge. With great trepidation we crossed this bridge in the dark with the aid of torchlight. It was pretty scary at the time. I am now 84 but remember those moments so well.
