Nostalgic memories of Beltinge's local history

Share your own memories of Beltinge and read what others have said

For well over 10 years now, we've been inviting visitors to our web site to add their own memories to share their experiences of life as it was when the photographs in our archive were taken. From brief one-liners explaining a little bit more about the image depicted, to great, in-depth accounts of a childhood when things were rather different than today (and everything inbetween!). We've had many contributors recognising themselves or loved ones in our photographs. Why not add your memory today and become part of our Memories Community to help others in the future delve back into their past.

Now I am searching for what the gardens looked like before the landslide which was a year before my late father bought the hotel, but was allso stationed there during World War 2. Catherine
