Childhood Memories Of Yapton - a Memory of Yapton.
i have very fond memories of visiting my grand parents in yapton, who lived opposite the church in the cottages.my grandfather Roy, i believe was the villiage carpenter and my nan alice was helper in the church, and also worked at the dentist along the lane.grandad also rang the bells on occasions. There were some good times i remember as a small boy like the time me and nan picked berries in the opposite hedgerow around the field to make jam,she never missed collecting conkers for me from the big tree in the lane.And i remember waving them good bye when dad walked me through the field and across the old air feild into climping .Sadly today we are many miles away living in cambridgeshire mainly due to house prices being out of reach for many of us.However we still make many a trip back to sussex,and visit the church yard where nan and grandad lie in rest together.
