Nostalgic memories of Holt Fleet's local history

Share your own memories of Holt Fleet 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.

In 1997 we purchased a wooden bungalow near Holt Fleet Lock. We would be interested in any memories about the wooden shacks and their occupants - we have the third bungalow past the kissing gate.
