More about this scene

Caption for Ditton, Ditchfield Road C1965: Any early farmstead close to the coast would have been an easy target for raiders and so probably needed defensive ditches - 'Ditton' means a farmstead with a ditch or dyke nearby. The name also survived through the centuries in 'Ditchfield' Hall which gave this road its name in the 19th century.

Memories of Ditton, Ditchfield Road c1965

I lived in Ditchfield in the 1930s and went to Ditton Hall mixed school. Eddie Murphy was our headmaster, he was a very good teacher as they all were. It was a small school then but a good school, with respect for the teachers.
