Wartime Feniton

A Memory of Feniton.

My name is Barry Felton and I was born in Feniton, what is now called Old Feniton, in 1945. My grandparents, Norman and Phyllis Wilson ran the Post Office in the village. My mother Patricia, their daughter, was in the WRNS based in London, and she moved to Feniton when she became pregnant and was discharged on compassionate grounds.She stayed with my grandparents and I was born in the Post Office. I have very little recollection of living there, as we moved to Pinhoe when I was about 4 or 5. I know that the Acland family lived at 'the big house' and that the local postman was called Wilkinson. The row of houses next to the Post Office were inhabited mostly by farm workers. I would be interested to know if anyone remembers my family from those days. My mother is still alive at 93 and living in Brisbane Australia.

With thanks to sbfelton for this memory of Feniton
