Forever My Home - a Memory of Great Torrington.
I grew up in Torrington & my family still live there and I love to visit the Commons.
My godfather Bob Cudmore who lived in Well Street all his life used to tell me so much history, I could listen to him for hours.
My dad John Buckley moved down here with his mother, uncle Ted and sister from Durrington to Station Cottages in the late 1940s as his uncle worked for the railways.
A little town steeped in history of the Civil War with glorious common land walks is my paradise.
I don't think I could ever move far away from the area and still feel homesick even though I only live in Bideford.
It'll always be my home and has so many memories for me, I love this place.
Although true Torritorians are fading out I will always be proud that I am one.
