Old Maps of Newton Abbot

Historic Maps of Newton Abbot and the local area.

Browsing through these pictures of NewtonAbbot reminded me of the Saturday job I had at the hardware store. Still feel an affinity with these type places that are left! Happy days at the Grammar School 1964 to 1970.

For a few years my grandfather worked here as an instructor in woodwork.My daughters father our law was also there as an instructor. For many years in the 60s I remember it being run for the deaf. As to the work house I and all my brothers and sisters were born there when it was the maternity wards. My mother worked as an auxiliary in the hospital for 26 years
