More about this scene

Caption for Wookey Hole, Car Park And Restaurant C1939: This is in essence the same building today; it is now painted white and green, with bigger windows and no veranda, surrounded by the car park. The river Axe tumbles from the caves to feed a paper mill, built in 1848 using local stone. It was built by the same family who built the church, the school, Wookey Hole Club and many houses for their employees. The previous mill had been built by 1656. The paper produced here is still made by hand. The village flourishes on the tourist trade.

Memories of Wookey Hole

I have an old letter from a Miss P Hill who lived at Summerleaze Cottage in the mid sixties. Sadly, we lost touch. Does anyone know of Summerleaze Cottage, Wookey, please, or of Miss Hill? Thank you.

Sparked a Memory for you?
