More about this scene


Caption for Castor, Main Road C1955: Here we see the use of local stone for building. The Prince of Wales is a name chosen to honour many pubs, and is fitting for a Royal County. But alas, the name is lost; the pub is now the Feathers, and the road outside it has had a chicane installed to calm the hurrying motorists.

Memories of Castor

We scattered some of my father's ashes here in March 2013. He was Arthur Benjamin Wyldbore, b 1921. His family was from Castor and Ailsworth and though he was born in London in 1921, he spent a lot of time with his grandparents and aunts and uncles in Castor and Peterborough. They were Wyldbores, Parkers, Carters, Browns. Milton Ferry Bridge is still a very lovely place, over the River Nene.
