The Ideal Village - a Memory of Ewden Village.
I lived with my grandparents for a short while in the late forties and visited often over the next fifteen years or so. Their home was one of the wooden bungalows that was Ewden Village. My grandad worked on the reservoirs as a stone mason and was also a wonderful gardener. I can still smell the wonderful scent of his flower garden. The village itself had a general store on the central road and always smelled of boiled sweets that were in big jars on the counters. There was a bowling green and a village green where cricket was played. It always seemed to me to be an idylic place to be and I have only good memories of Ewden Village and Ewden valley .
