Phil And Gail Buckingham - a Memory of Hurstbourne Tarrant.
Unless I am mistaken, the house on the left in this photo was formerly owned by Phil and Gail Buckingham and is called "Shepherd's Peace". Phil and Gail became friends of my parents while they lived briefly in New Zealand in the 1950's, around the time I came into the world.
When I lived in the UK as a young man in the 1970's, I visited them often in Hurstbourne Tarrant and spent many enjoyable Sundays (and sometimes weekends) with them.
I have been to the UK numerous times over the intervening years and kept in regular contact with Phil and Gail up until the times of their deaths. On my most recent trip in 2006, I visited the church and spent some time at their headstones remembering what wonderful people they were.
I would love to hear from anyone who might be able to confirm that this is indeed, their house in the photo, and anyone who knew them and who would share some memories of them.
