Old Maps of Gaywood

Historic Maps of Gaywood and the local area.

My grandfather was the owner of Gaywood Hall; my mother lived here with her four sisters. I still have old photos and I'm hoping to visit for my 70th birthday in September 2013 with my two children. I cannot remember the hall, but have always wanted to see where my family lived, and visit the area.

On the night I was born at Gaywood Nursing Home, Lord Hawhaw had given a message on the radio that the Germans would be bombing Gaywood Clock, and I was put under a table in the cellar. My father was in the special branch of the Home Guard having been invalided out of the RAF where he had been a fighter pilot.
