Primroses And Pastures - a Memory of Bewdley.
It would have been during the War that I recall visiting my aunt Norah and uncle Charles Fernihough at their farm, . The Liveridge, Ribbesford, Bewdley. My dad, Aunt Norah's brother, would take me, periodically on the Midland Red bus from Birmingham for a day visit. It was wonderful! From the time we got off the bus in Load Lane and made that good 30 minute walk, deep into the countryside passing pretty fields and pastures, streams with primrose laden banks and many styles to climb we would arrive at Aunt Norah's. Phyllis, the housekeeper would refresh us with her baked bread, cake and Tea or Milk for me. It was a dairy farm so there was plenty of milk. Summer visits I would help pick fruit in the orchards, herd the cattle and visit my much older cousin at her farm The Deasland which in fact is in the Doomsday book. To get to the Deasland I would go down through the Meadow, cross the prettiest babbling brook which in Springtime was banked by primroses, it was beautiful. Then up the other side where I reached cousin Avis's farm. The Deasland is at Rock near Little Lakes Caravan site which my other cousin Peter owned; it is still operational today.
My other cousin Harold, I believe married the daughter of the people who owned The Angel
Pub in Bewdley, which is near the river bridge.
I was very fond of my aunt and visited until I married in 1954. I went some 10 years ago to say Hello to the then aged cousins and recall happy memories of the historic English town of Bewdley.
