Evoking childhood — 4 Comments

  1. Ian, When you write of your childhood experiences they also bring back childhood memories of High Ham for me too, I am assuming the woods were Turn Hill? I spent many happy hours there too, building dens and playing games. Bluebells did grow at Turn Hill.There was also cowslips.
    I too was excited by a trip to London, unfortunately now for me unlike yourself I would hate to have to go to London.

  2. Oddly, it was Pitney woods and I met the woman who took us at Nan Crossman’s funeral in 2007 – she had no recall. I too would hate to ‘have to go’ to London, but find when I take it on my own terms, it’s not such a bad place (certainly cheaper than Dublin!)

  3. I could see the Mendips from my bedroom window. They had a Tolkien-like Misty Mountain quality about them, partly because they were beyond Glastonbury Tor, which was a strange enough place in childhood imagination.
