Village Of Orwell - a Memory of Orwell.

When I was a child, we moved to Orwell Grange, a large house on an estate of 7 acres. The village of Orwell stands on the A603 just 7 miles from Cambridge, where my mother taught shorthand and typing. Our home was also run as a school, where many students attended from all over the world. I rembember driving my pony Pepper down the road to the Barrington shop. Times have changed! Not far from our house, down the country lane is Wimpole Park, we used to ride our horses along the verge, and thru the park. I remember many happy rides through the fields of Cambridgeshire. The sound of cooing wood pigeons will stay with me forever.
