A Memory of Millbrook.
I spent my school summer holidays in Millbrook from the mid 50's to the mid 60's - and every one was wonderful. I stayed with my grandparents, Mr and Mrs Ede, at 85 West Street, Millbrook. The house is long gone albeit the address still exists. My grandfather used to take me and a 'rabble' of cousins and young uncles camping at an area we called 'Palm Rock' on the Cremyll Road; in later years we moved and camped at Whitsand Bay. One summer we worked on Ken Acton's farm at the top of Hounster Hill, we had a fabulous time doing all manner of bits and pieces for him and at the end of the week he paid us pocket money. He was a lovely, kindly man to us kids - his bark was worse than his bite. No laptops, ipods, mobile phones etc. just hours and hours of fun in the sun - Cremyll, Maker, St. Johns, Cawsand, Kingsand - the list goes on. Oh, to be able to turn the clock back just for a day . . . but I have my memories and still manage the occasional visit. I still enjoy a pasty on Cawsand beach . . .!
