Memory Lane - a Memory of Southam.

We moved to the outskirts of Southam in 1963 a small Town then. Walking to the shops where the highlighs of the day, my babies where born here delivered by the local midwife who just lived a few doors away. Pushing the pram down Abby Lane, the old prefabricated huts on the left, down over the bridge with the tiny butcher shop amongst the cottages on the right. Crossing the road by the Black Dog to go to library up the little ally struggling to get the pram up the big step, may stop at Nora's Caffee for a cupa on up to the Co op to do the weekly shop.Ahhhh they where the days. I still live in Southam in the old Red Lion Pub, just wish I could find some history about the pub
