My Godstone - a Memory of Godstone.

I lived in Godstone from 1947-1975 when I moved to Dorset. In those days I was Wendy Knight. At one time my father worked at the bakers, Broad's it was called, it was two doors down from the shop on the green, his brother Sidney had R G Knight's the butcher, R G being their father. I spent a lot of time down the stables, first at Barretts, then Stangrave Hall. We also had great times at Leigh mill stream or Diana's fountain as we knew. Lots of memories came flooding back when I found this site.  Like skating on the Bay pond or playing down the bog, looking for newts in the hilly fields in very smelly ponds. My father-in-law was Frank Coombe who had Foster Down Farm when it was a dog kennels.
