Todber Caravan Park, Bonfire Nights

A Memory of Gisburn.

Does anybody reading this remember Tom Varley's steam museum/bonfire nights in the big brick barn with the music from the engines and parch peas, hotpots and bonfire on top of the hill. Or the little pool in the first static field in the bottom left corner. Or the outside toilet blocks with the handringer outside and big pot sinks that sometimes small children were washed in. My memories of Todber go from 1972- 82, does anybody else remembers anything from that time? The field day on the playing field in the village or walking down to the cattle market from Todber for something to do? No computers in those days.

With thanks to Patricia Breakell for this memory of Gisburn
