Allonby Reading Room - a Memory of Allonby.

My Auntie and Uncle lived in a wing of Allonby Reading Room; it was called Melville House. Their surname was Hill and their Christian names were May and Joseph. I spent many summer holidays in the 50s and early 60s with them and enjoyed the time with them; riding horses, spending time on the beach and going to the Lake District. I went to Auntie May's funeral and she was buried in Allonby church cemetery. It is not until recently that I found out that the Reading Room was virtually destroyed by the weather but has since been bought and refurbished.
