Longpark Frank And Edith Pyle - a Memory of Feniton.
My great uncle and aunt lived at Long Park when the station was known as Sidmouth Junction. My brother spent many holidays there, in particular during the war. Uncle Frank bred pigs as well as gereral farming. I used to stay in Honiton and I would alsways be brought to Long Park for afternoon tea. I remember Miss Hurford, the housekeeper. She made butter and cheese and devonshire cream. There were two monkey puzzle trees on the lawn in front of the house. Uncle Frank was treasurer at Honiton Show. Aunt Edith would sit in the car at the showground gaurding the money as he collected it. Has anyone a photo of Long Park as I would love to have one for my records.
