The Riding School - a Memory of Allonby.

I spent two weeks of every school summer holiday in the 1950s in Allonby with my mum and two aunts and numerous friends. We used to either rent a cottage in one of the farmers' fields or in a old converted train carriage. It was a long way from the hustle and bustle of post-war London and I loved it, especially the horse riding. If I could ride every morning and afternoon I would. I remember Mrs Jackson and especially Len Jackson who used to take our rides. I haven't been back for around 45 years but it's on the list!
