Devon Born And Bred!! - a Memory of Tiverton.

What a great web site! I was born at Tiverton Hospital in 1948. My mother, father and brother lived in Market Street.
On a visit from Australia in 1995, my father and I visited Tiverton - to return to the place of my birth. We only had a couple of hours to spare but after seeing these photos would have loved to have spent more time exploring. Of course I knew of Blundells School from reading Lorna Doone as a child. I think we moved from Tiverton in 1950 and although I had visited grandparents at Paignton, we had never returned to Tiverton. Time is marching on and my Australian husband has no interest in visiting England!! Maybe I might be lucky.
